Neuronet - Efficiently Networking European Neurodegeneration Research

          Press Release - February 1, 2021

The IMI2 Neuronet programme releases Knowledge Base dashboard representing key information on 18 neurodegeneration research projects encompassing 386 million EUR of funding

Madrid, 1 February 2021 – Today, the members of the Neuronet (Efficiently Networking European Neurodegeneration Research) programme are pleased to announce the launch of a pan-European Knowledge Base which brings together key information about the 18 projects of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) neurodegeneration (ND) portfolio.

This comprehensive resource is an integral part of Neuronet’s endeavour to boost collaboration across the research portfolio by assisting in identifying gaps, multiplying the portfolio’s impact, and enhancing its visibility with related initiatives in Europe and worldwide.
“The Neuronet Knowledge Base tool intends to bring the “better together” team concept to life and overcome the inherent fragmentation often found in a project-based research landscape,” said Carlos Díaz, CEO SYNAPSE and Neuronet Coordinator.
Access the Knowledge Base
Programme overview
As well as providing a summary overview of the IMI neurodegeneration research programme through its interactive dashboard, the Neuronet Knowledge Base includes links to over 380 publications and more than 350 publishable deliverable reports, acting as a one-stop shop to explore the diverse projects and outputs of the programme.

Knowledge Base tools
An “Asset Map” gives a comprehensive view of the different assets resulting from the projects, such as genetic datasets, clinical cohorts, and data platforms. The interactive map allows users to obtain more detailed information about the specific assets of each project. Furthermore, the Knowledge Base offers access to a regulatory, health technology assessment & payer engagement Decision Tool to help researchers identify the key processes and procedures for engagement with these stakeholders at key points in the development of an asset.

Staying up to date on scientific progress and activities
In addition to project and programme-related information, users can also access an agenda listing key upcoming scientific conferences and view a feed with the latest project-related activities.
“This newly developed platform is key in Neuronet’s effort to centralize and integrate the vast amount of knowledge generated within the ND IMI portfolio,” said Lennert Steukers, Associate Director, Clinical Scientist, Janssen Pharmaceutica NV, and Neuronet Leader.
