D3.7 Final version on guidance tools on data/sample sharing and use

With this deliverable, Neuronet provides some learnings from the Neuronet WG ‘Data sharing and reuse’. Neuronet aims to facilitate the sharing of data amongst IMI projects, and with other interested research programs at European and global level.
In the current deliverable, practical challenges of efficient data sharing are discussed. The obtained learnings from the various IMI projects in the ND portfolio when it comes to data sharing are being integrated into the discussion. The aim is to provide the research community with best practices in order to enable efficient sharing and access to data, while taking into consideration all relevant data sharing barriers (e.g. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), legal, intellectual properties (IP), ethical, societal, technical).

D1.5 Integrated programme analysis v2

NEURONET is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) aiming to support and better integrate projects in the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) Neurodegenerative Disorders (ND) portfolio. WP1 Projects & Impact Analysis is a descriptive and methodological work package (WP) that collects information (e.g., scope, deliverables, funding etc.) about IMI ND projects to enable an integrated view of the IMI ND project portfolio in terms of relative specialisation, timelines, expertise, and outputs. As part of WP1 activities, NEURONET conducted an analysis of IMI ND projects at the programme level in order to obtain the first integrated view of the portfolio (Deliverable 1.2). This deliverable reports an update to the first approach, representing five new projects that have been added to the IMI ND portfolio. This deliverable also provides a refined understanding of the portfolio’s project outputs and potential synergies.

D1.6 Map of relevant initiatives and gap analysis v2

There are many research activities focused on Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases in the global research landscape. This deliverable aimed to map neurodegenerative disease research initiatives based on their strategic importance and carry out a gap analysis to identify gaps in our understanding of the evidence base and areas to prioritise for future research.
Using a framework of strategic importance, a survey was carried out of researchers to rate a list of initiatives on several variables and to add any initiatives they are aware of that are not on the list. People living with dementia and their supporters and health technology assessment and regulatory experts were consulted on gaps both generally and within the IMI neurodegenerative disease research portfolio and asked to identify priorities for future research.
The results of the mapping and gap analysis show that while there seems to be a busy landscape of neurodegenerative disease research, there is a need for better management, co-ordination, and communication of initiatives to achieve more impact. Furthermore, there are several gaps/areas where more research focus is needed to address the needs of various stakeholders, particularly those who are recipients of research outputs.

D4.5 Public event proceedings and videos – Year 3

Neuronet organises an annual networking and outreach event in collaboration with the individual projects, to shine a spotlight on the IMI neurodegeneration portfolio. The event proceedings are then disseminated to the general public through Neuronet’s communication channels, which include a website, regular newsletters and social media feeds.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2021 Alzheimer Europe organised a virtual conference instead of an in-person event in which Neuronet participated.
This document provides an overview of the annual event as well as associated outreach activities that have been conducted in the third year of the Neuronet initative.

D2.3 Report #2 on activity of SCB, WGs and TFs

The NEURONET Coordination and Support Action has the main objective of setting up an efficient platform to boost synergy and collaboration across the IMI projects of the Neurodegenerative Disorders portfolio, assisting in identifying its gaps, multiplying its impact, enhancing its visibility and facilitating dovetailing with related initiatives in Europe and worldwide.
Deliverable D2.3 Report #2 on activity of SCB, WGs and TFs constitutes a report on the activities of the Scientific Coordination Board, the four Working Groups, and two new Task Forces from March 2020 until the end of April 2021.

D1.4 First report on impact of IMI neurodegeneration portfolio

The mission of IMI2 is to “improve health by speeding up the development of, and patient access to, innovative medicines, particularly in areas where there is an unmet medical or social need”1. Therefore, the ultimate impact that IMI projects can have is to enable the development, approval and access to effective and affordable medicines. There is an implicit assumption that spending on research and development (R&D) through the activities of the IMI neurodegeneration project portfolio might improve innovation in this disease area. Therefore, if we want to assess the impact of the IMI neurodegeneration project portfolio, we will need to identify :
(1) what factors are likely to facilitate pharmaceutical innovation in neurodegenerative diseases, and
(2) how is the IMI neurodegeneration project portfolio contributing to these factors

D4.3 Interim report on dissemination activities

The present Interim Report on dissemination activities provides a detailed list of communications activities that have been carried out halfway through the coordination and support action (CSA). These include the development of a Communications Experts Community and the creation and maintenance of NEURONET communications channels, as well as participation in two high-profile face-to-face events. The report assesses the impact of undertaken communication activities, analyses compliance with the initial plan and identifies future dissemination opportunities as updates to the communication strategy.

D3.6 INKB web platform v2: The NEURONET Knowledge Base v2

Deliverable D3.6 describes the updates made on the design and structure of the NEURONET Knowledge Base since the submission of deliverable D3.1 INKB web platform v1 submitted in month 6.

The aim of the Knowledge Base is to provide a summary overview of the IMI ND programme, in the format of a dashboard, where users can find information about the portfolio of projects (e.g. work plan, deliverables, results, publications, tools developed, etc). It also includes a section with the contact details of project experts in six key areas (ethics, data sharing, regulatory interactions, sustainability, communication and project management). More recently, we have also included the first tools developed by NEURONET, namely the Asset map and the Regulatory and HTA engagement Decision Tool.

D3.3 First version of regulatory/HTA/payer interaction decision tool

This deliverable reports on the development of a Decision Tool aimed at identifying the key processes and procedures for engagement with regulatory, HTA bodies, and payers at key points in the development of an asset. The tool will help the IMI ND projects in identifying the most appropriate procedures and ways in which they can interact with different stakeholders, based on the project’s stage of research and type of asset being developed. This will help ensure that the outputs being developed by projects that are part of the IMI Neurodegeneration portfolio are relevant for regulatory and HTA settings, where applicable.
