In February 2019, the JPI HDHL launched “METADIS”, a third call organized under the umbrella of the ERA HDHL-INTIMIC in order to promote collaborative international research on nutrition and health.

The first submission step of the METADIS call closed on April 2, 2019. 42 pre-proposals were submitted among which 39 were eligible. The scientific evaluation of the 39 pre-proposals was organised and 20 consortia have been invited for the submission of a full-proposal. The submission deadline of the full proposals is July 9, 2019 at 16:00 UTC.

In agreement with the missions of the ERA-Net, the METADIS call focus on the impact of diet, food components and food processing on body weight regulation and related metabolic diseases. Moreover, each submitted project should present one or more dedicated actions intended to promote the career development of the early career scientists (PhD, Post-doc) involved in the proposed project.

Eleven countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden) and 13 funding agencies support this initiative.
