JPI AMR soon to announce the next call for international research projects on antibiotic resistance


piątek, 2 listopada 2018

December 2018 will see the launch of the next call for transnational projects supported by the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPI AMR).

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the major global health and development challenges of the 21st century. The threat of AMR is particularly high in resource-limited and high-risk settings. This is linked to weak human and animal health systems; diverse means of food production, processing and consumption; food safety and food security; water, hygiene and sanitation challenges; and the global movement of people and goods.

In response to these challenges, the JPI AMR will launch a joint transnational call for proposals for innovative research projects on new or improved diagnostics and surveillance strategies, tools, technologies and methods. These research projects should address diagnosis of AMR infections in clinical and veterinary settings, or the emergence, surveillance, and/or detection of AMR in humans, animals and the environment. This Call will support research projects that also have the potential for impact in areas where the risk and burden of AMR is greatest, e.g. in LMIC settings in Asia and Africa.

Projects are encouraged to use a One Health approach where relevant. The projected call budget is approx. 20 million Euro.

The call involves a two stage procedure: the deadline for submission of pre-proposal is February 2019, full proposals should be submitted in June 2019.

For more information about the call see JPI AMR https://www.jpiamr.eu/coming-soon-call-for-diagnostics-and-surveillance-africa-and-asia/

Polish research teams participating in the call will be funded by the National Science Centre (NCN), which allocated  € 0,5 M for the call.
