Open Calls

Network Plus 2020

The JPIAMR is launching the tenth joint call for transnational networks in partnership with seven member countries; Canada, France, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Spain, and Sweden.

The intent of the call “JPIAMR Network Plus 2020” is to support networks to design and implement ways to support AMR research considering at least one of the six strategic areas of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda: Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Surveillance, Transmission, Environment and Interventions. Networks should develop and implement activities focusing on AMR within the domains of Human health, Animal health and the Environment. The Networks are encouraged to bridge multiple One Health areas as needed and to consider the incorporation of their activities within the JPIAMR-Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI).

  • Opening of the call: 10th February 2020
  • Closing of the call: 6th April 2020, 17.00 CET  Due to the current COVID-19 situation the deadline for the call will be postponed until May 28th, 17.00 CET

This joint transnational call will support research and innovation projects that establish integrated and cross-sectoral approaches for risk-management combining the research areas of contaminants of emerging concerns (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistance. The whole water cycle, from the source through the river basins and eventually to the estuaries and oceans, has to be considered. The projected call budget is approximately 25 million Euro (co-funded by European Commission).

  • Opening of the call: 17th February 2020
  • Deadline pre-proposals: 16th April 2020 Due to the current COVID-19 situation the deadline for the call will be postponed until May 18th, 17.00 CET.

Call on knowledge transfer of research on Aquatic Pollutants

The Call on knowledge transfer of research on Aquatic Pollutants will be part of the AquaticPollutants ERA-Net Cofund action and support the AquaticPollutants cofunded call projects. The objective is to realize a better and wider dissemination, develop new innovative methods to support the transfer of research and the uptake of results into the public and administrative sector, policy, industry or economy. This will lead to a greater and focused impact and increase the awareness of projects’ outcomes. Moreover, cross-cutting issues, that address all transnational projects alike, can better be dealt with. The implementation of a knowledge transfer project will in addition lead to a better alignment of the three participating JPIs and improve their collaboration possibilities.

Proposals should be built by a consortia of French, German and Swedish institutions. The total budget of the call is approximately 1,050,000 Euro.

  • February 17th 2020, 17.00 CET: Call opening
  • April 16th 2020: Deadline full proposals Due to the current COVID-19 situation the deadline for the call will be postponed until May 18th, 17.00 CET. 
  • August 2020: Final decision
  • October to December 2020: Project start
