Collaborative research programs Grant

Our Collaborative Research Programs encompass a range of multi-investigator and multi-institutional research programs. We believe in the power of bringing together scientists from different disciplines to work together to fulfill our mission of carrying out research that will result in better outcomes for MS patients.

Start2Cure will award one International Network of Excellence grant a year, for a yet to be determined fixed budget for four to five years. Applicants are encouraged to think innovatively and to propose bold new ideas. 


The added value of the collaborative effort to the overall network scientific program is an important indicator of the network’s potential and is evaluated at the initial application and subsequently throughout the life of the network

Interdisciplinary collaboration is particularly encouraged, as, for example, strategically including an outstanding scientist into the Start2Cure´s network, who is potentially new to Multiple Sclerosis research, brings vital new technology and perspectives.

We expect to launch our collaborative research program in 2022.
