Eight networks have been awarded funding within the JPIAMR 2018 call for transnational networks “Building the Foundation of the JPIAMR Virtual Research Institute.” Each funded network will receive €50,000 to establish expertise clusters to identify research community needs and develop ideas to form the foundation for the JPIAMR Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI).
The call was launched in May 2018 and supported by ten research-funding organisations from JPIAMR member countries. Fifteen applications were received, involving 15 coordinators and 323 partners. In total eight transnational networks were granted funding for projects lasting one year.
