ESF and EUROHORCs Simulation Exercise for Joint Programming


The European Commission has invited the European Science Foundation and the European Heads of Research Councils to draft a simulation exercise of a Joint Programming proposal. The aim of the simulation is to provide Commissioner Potocnik with an example of how a Joint Programme could be designed and implemented.

The selection of cardiovascular disease as a pilot for simulation should not be taken as an indication that it is necessarily the priority area for Joint Programming within the Medical Research sector. The simulation was kept
as broad as possible to serve as a working template for further work in different areas of medical research.
