Welcome on the website of Euro-MOTOR: European multidisciplinary ALS network identification to cure motor neurone degeneration

group picture kick-off meeting

The objective of Euro-MOTOR is to discover new causative and disease-modifying pathways to pave the way for novel therapies for ALS.

This will be achieved by pursuing the following 3 sub-objectives in 3 different pillars. These 3 pillars form the basis of the Euro-MOTOR project, and the framework of this proposal.

Pillar I To generate large scale quantitative data sets (read more)

Pillar II To integrate these data in a robust computational ALS model (read more)

Pillar III To validate this computational model and apply it for the development of novel therapies (read more)

The central concept of Euro-MOTOR is that a robust and validated computational ALS model can only be generated when all its individual components are robust and validated. Therefore, each individual pillar is designed to deliver high-quantity, high-quality and validated data to the subsequent pillar, as explained in brief below.


SME call 2014

This call is now closed!

The EuroMOTOR consortium is currently identifying/ prioritizing the top 3-5 lead candidates identified in an integrated biosystematic approach for novel therapies for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. EuroMOTOR requires the participation of an SME (biotech/pharma) to carry out certain tasks within the project and has therefore published a competitive call.
Please find here the call announcement text, the proposal form and the administrative form. Applicants will find the evaluation form to be used by the evaluators here, for their information.
The grant agreement and consortium agreement can be found here.
The call closes on 29 October 2014. For more information, please send an email to the project coordinator: [email protected]
