Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

JPI-EC-AMR Cofund Call for Proposals

“To unravel the dynamics of transmission and selection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at genetic, bacterial, animal, human, societal, and environmental levels, in order to design and evaluate preventive and intervening measures for controlling resistance.”

AS OF MARCH 21, 2016, for Pre-proposals submission this call is now closed.

With the aim of tackling the leading medical and societal challenges faced by our society, a JPIAMR joint transnational co-funded call for proposals opened on January 18th, 2016 in partnership with the European Commission under the ERA-NET Co-fund scheme.

The primary aim of the third joint call of JPIAMR is to combine the resources, infrastructures, and research strengths of multiple countries in order to address transmission of antibiotic resistance following a ‘One Health Approach’. The goal is to foster multinational research collaborations to add value to and to build upon the research conducted independently at national level and to work together to improve the control of resistant bacterial infections of clinical and/or veterinary importance only.

Click here for a synopsis of the call topic. The call is conducted simultaneously by 22 participating funding organisations from 17 JPIAMR member countries, Portugal and Latvia, and coordinated centrally, with a single proposal submission and peer review system. The call has a two-step procedure, with a first stage (pre-proposal submission) from which selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Applications are invited from collaborative consortia of researchers from participating countries according to JPIAMR and national eligibility criteria (see Call text and Specific regulations below). Under Horizon 2020, the European Commission is providing additional funding to ‘top up’ the funding that is being made available through national/regional funding organisations.

The total fund for this call is over 24 million euro (for all participating countries) with a 6 million euro European Commission “topping up” fund.

Deadline:  The pre-proposal submission deadline is 17:00 (C.E.T) on the 21st of March, 2016.
