The Innovative Medicines Initiative launches a public-private coordination and support action


Today, the members of the NEURONET project announced the start of a new collaborative pan-European coordination and support initiative for the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) projects of the Neurodegenerative Disorders (ND) portfolio. CMAST - a leading consultancy and project management company in life sciences – is also involved in this project, in support of Janssen Pharmaceutica.

NEURONET will set up a platform that will enable collaboration across the IMI ND portfolio by assisting in identifying gaps, multiplying the portfolio’s impact, and enhancing its visibility with related initiatives in Europe and worldwide.


NEURONET consists of a small number of active partners in a variety of IMI ND projects and related initiatives. Its partners are specialists in complex/project management, data sharing & re-use, drug development, patient engagement, communication, sustainability and regulatory/HTA interactions.
