Calls for Proposals



The ARSEP Foundation, supports your research through private donations she receives, including individuals sponsors and companies.
Fundraising is difficult. Therefore, the Foundation thinks that it is absolutely necessary to inform our donors that their generosity has contributed significantly to the achievement of important results in research on multiple sclerosis and associated disorders.
ARSEP Foundation supports financially your research works because she believes in your researchers' qualities and in your research scientific potential. Her objective is to continue this mission which is to support still and always a growing number of research projects.
The increasing support of the Foundation cannot be made without the growth of her fame. For this reason, the Foundation will be very attentive to the fact that her actions are visible for scientific community, media and donors. We reckon on you to communicate and to cite the ARSEP foundation whenever she is associated with advances in multiple sclerosis and associated disorders researches.
As it is notified in the agreements established between the Foundation and the research institutes on which you depend, as well as in the letters of acceptance that you have signed, we remind you that you made a commitment to quote the name of ARSEP Foundation, “Fondation pour l’aide à la recherche sur la Sclérose en Plaques”, and/or its logo, in all publications, oral communications and posters realized through this financial support.
The absence of ARSEP Foundation visibility in the results of your research is very damaging to our efforts to collect funds and in fact to support your research works.

Appelée SEP ou multiple sclerosis en anglais, la sclérose en plaques est une maladie neurologique qui détruit la gaine de myéline. Qu’elle soit de forme rémittente (à poussées) ou de forme progressive, il n’existe à ce jour aucun traitement curatif de cette affection. La Fondation ARSEP œuvre depuis 1969 avec ses bénévoles, aux côtés des facultés, de l’INSERM, du CNRS et de différents instituts de recherche médicale, dont l’ICM et Pasteur.
