Calls for proposals
According to its statutory purpose, AriSLA promotes the financing of basic research, clinical and technological research projects. The aim of the agency is to rationalise and coordinate research efforts in order to provide better treatments and improve life conditions for people with ALS
In principle, AriSLA follows those objectives by:
• providing grants and issuing calls for proposals. Project proposals should be submitted within the deadline
• coordinating research networks for various national and international programmes.
• supporting innovative and experimental project proposals with a strong and innovative idea and approach.
As a private association, AriSLA is fully autonomous, being the only responsible for projects screening and financing. Both public and private research bodies, whose activities are consistent with the agency’s aims can submit proposals and receive financing for non-lucrative purposes. AriSLA should give financial support as well as to research bodies located outside Italy, provided that they are eligible and they meet the same requirements as the Italian ones and provided they participate as associate partner with an Italian lead partner.
Individuals and persons governed by the private law whose activity is profit making, are not eligible for financing.
