Short Call Abstract: 
The aim of the call is to establish a limited number of ambitious, innovative, multi-national and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects that
- combine experimental approaches from fundamental, pre-clinical and/or clinical with computational approaches
- perform network analyses in different neurodegenerative and other chronic diseases to elucidate the underlying mechanisms common and differing in the investigated diseases
- will add value to existing research by analysing diseases across traditional clinical boundaries, thereby gaining deeper understanding of the patho-physiological mechanisms of the diseases.

The following neurodegenerative diseases are included in the call: 
- Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias 
- Parkinson’s disease and PD‐related disorders 
- Prion disease 
- Motor neuron diseases 
- Huntington’s disease 
- Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) 
- Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).

Cross-Disease analysis may solely comprise different neurodegenerative diseases or neurodegenerative and other chronic diseases. However, at least one of the above mentioned neurodegenerative diseases must be addressed.

SSH aspects:
Socio-economic factors, as well as issues such as gender or comorbidities, should be taken into account.
