Aquatic Pollutants

The three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are pleased to announce a joint transnational call for research and innovation projects on risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in the water resources.

The call AquaticPollutants 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 the European Commission).

There are still major risks associated with the occurrence of emerging contaminants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in our water bodies and oceans. To face these challenges in a comprehensive way and to develop multidisciplinary and practical solutions for the provision of safe drinking water and healthy aquatic environments, this Joint Transnational Call (JTC) aims to make the research communities in the freshwater, marine and the health sectors work together and create synergies for joint approaches.

Call themes

  1. Measuring – Environmental behaviour of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems
  2. Evaluating – Risk assessment and management of CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria from aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine) to human health and environment
  3. Taking Actions – Strategies to reduce CECs, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine)

JPIAMR Network Plus 2020

The JPIAMR is launching the tenth call for transnational networks in partnership with eight member countries; Canada, France, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, 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 (SRIA): 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).

Networks will be funded with €50,000-100,000 per year per Network for one to two years, to connect experts from research performing organisations and establish expertise clusters in the AMR community. Networks may build upon new or existing global collaborations/partnerships. The total budget of the call is approximately 940,000 Euro.

The formation of larger, multi-coordinator Networks is possible according to national rules. This is an ERA-NET JPI-EC-AMR additional activity.

Note that JPIAMR Network calls do not fund research projects.

Scope of the call

Projects should aim to either:

  • Develop strategies, tools, technologies, and methods for the detection, monitoring, profiling and/or surveillance of antimicrobial resistance and dynamics leading to resistance.
  • Study ways to facilitate and implement the uptake and use of existing strategies, tools, technologies, and/or methods for the detection, monitoring, profiling and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance and dynamics leading to resistance.

Expected Outcomes

It is expected that this JPIAMR call will contribute to the urgent need to curb the burden associated with the most prioritised infections in different geographical settings. This topic area is also suitable to reinforce collaborations involving industry and social sciences. Regional LMIC led collaborations are welcomed. The results of the funded projects should contribute to improved understanding, monitoring and detection of AMR where efforts to curb AMR will have a global impact.

Suggested Focal Areas

  • Establish the validity of new or improved diagnostic tools, technologies and methods.
  • Evaluate how new or improved diagnostics can promote more prudent use of antibiotics (e.g. narrow spectrum antibiotics) in human and veterinary use
  • Rapid diagnostics (essential for optimal antimicrobial selection) and point-of-care techniques, to improve personalised or individual therapies
  • Development of new, or more efficient use and accessibility of already existing, tools, technologies and/or methods to detect AMR in multiple reservoirs, for example human, animal and environmental samples

Projects are encouraged to consider the global use of the tools, technologies and methods, including use in low and lower middle income settings (e.g. lack of laboratory facilities, affordable diagnostic tests, unreliable or unavailable electricity supplies or points-of-care-tests).

The following sub-topics are not within the scope of the call:

  • Investigations based on, or involving, clinical trials.
  • Investigations aiming to improve existing commercial technology or products (more details on this will be in the full call text and annexes)

Innovations against antibiotic-resistant bacteria: New targets, compounds and tools

The primary aim of the 6th joint call of the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) is to combine the resources, infrastructures, and research strengths of multiple countries in order to address the identification and validation of new targets, the development of new therapies, and new tools for new treatments (including new antibiotics).

The goal is to foster multinational research collaborations to add value to, and to build upon, the research conducted independently at national level, as well as to work together to develop new and urgently needed therapies.

The call will only cover research tackling the bacterial pathogens and the resistances identified in the Global priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria published by the WHO in September 2017 with the addition of multi- and extensively drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

It is expected that through international collaborations combining complementary and synergistic research strengths, this JPIAMR call will contribute to the urgent need to curb the burden associated with the most prioritised infections. It is also a topic area suitable to reinforce academic – industry collaborations. The participation of industry is encouraged. The results of the funded projects should have an added value to society as a whole, the public health and finances by closing knowledge gaps and discovering new therapies. Although stand-alone projects are fully eligible, links with other European or international research programs and initiatives in the field will be of added value.

Prevention and Intervention Strategies to control AMR infections

In order to protect and prolong the usefulness of existing antimicrobials, increasing cross-sectoral efforts are needed to rationalize their use and misuse in human and animal health and food production settings.

Key measures to achieve this are to improve existing and implement new evidence-based control, prevention, stewardship and intervention strategies to reduce the risk of acquisition, development and transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and infection caused by these pathogens, in hospitalized patients, outpatients, healthy people, animals and the environment.

Despite significant investments in research and increased knowledge about the development, acquisition, occurrence, and transmission pathways of AMR, little of this research has translated into interventions to significantly improve health care by reducing improper antibiotic usage or infections by resistant microbes.

In summary, controlled integrated studies between human population, health care systems, and agricultural settings, multiple sectors are urgently needed to devise the optimal intervention strategies across diverse cultural settings and heterogeneous systems of human health and animal health and food production.

It is expected that through international collaborations that combine complementary and synergistic research strengths, this JPIAMR call will increase the understanding of prevention, control, stewardship and intervention strategies for AMR infections. Proposals are expected to clearly define targets and milestones to deliver relevant outcomes within the funding period.

Call Topics

The call will cover research addressing the following topics:

  • One Health oriented pilot studies to determine feasibility and protocols for future large scale multi-center and multi-national studies of different prevention or intervention strategies designed to prevent AMR infections in community, health care, agricultural and environmental settings. The One Health approach is encouraged, but not mandatory.
  • Compared effectiveness and economic evaluation of the implementation of new and/or more cost-effective methods for rapid detection and diagnosis of infections by multi-drug resistant microorganisms (MDR) for the purpose of identification of appropriate therapy, transmission routes or early detection of outbreaks in different settings.
  • Investigations of efficacy and effectiveness of behavioral intervention strategies, public awareness strategies or other stewardship strategies aiming at reducing the use and misuse of antibiotics and the development and transfer of AMR.
  • Assessment of new methods to improve and raise hygiene and sanitation standards to reduce infections in health and care settings.
  • Evaluation of the impact of new ways to standardize and utilize antimicrobial use and transmission data on intervention strategies and prevention of antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial Resistance through the JPIAMR

New therapeutic approaches are urgently needed to control bacterial infections and safeguard the health of populations. The reviving of ND-AB and research on improving the efficiency of antibiotics by using them in combination with another antibiotics or a nonantibiotic can be a fast solution to overcome antimicrobial resistance.

The primary aim of this second joint call of JPIAMR is to combine the resources, infrastructures, and research strengths of multiple countries in order to overcome antibiotic resistance. The goal is to foster multinational translational research collaborations that can accomplish more than individual countries working independently, and improve the control of bacterial infections.

Call Topics

Sustain defense against AMR in human and animal health to reduce occurrence of resistance or overcome established resistance by:

  • reviving Neglected and Disused AntiBiotics (ND-AB)
  • designing combinations of ND-AB and antibiotic
  • designing combinations of ND-AB and non-antibiotic

The activity of ND-AB and the synergy of the combinations of ND-AB with other antibiotics and non-antibiotic should be validated by testing for activity/synergy in vitro and in validated animal models with pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modelling.

InnovaResistance: Innovative approaches to address antibacterial resistance

The dearth of new bactericidal or bacteriostatic drugs entering the clinic and the emergence of infections due to multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria requires international collaboration supported by substantial financial investment. New drugs and/or therapeutic approaches are urgently needed to control bacterial infections and safeguard the health of populations.

The primary aim of this first joint call of JPIAMR is to combine the resources, infrastructures, and research strengths of multiple countries in order to overcome antibiotic resistance. The goal is to foster multinational translational research collaborations that can accomplish more than individual countries working independently, leading to improved control of bacterial infections.

It is expected that through international collaborations that combine complementary and synergistic research strengths, this JPIAMR call will facilitate the generation and application of new approaches to overcome antibiotic resistance.

Call Topics

The call will cover research addressing the following topics:

  • Re-evaluation of existing anti-microbial compounds either alone or in combination with other drugs, immune-modulators or anti-bacterial approaches.
  • Identification of new bacterial targets and/or therapeutic compounds in combination with point-of-care
    companion diagnostics where relevant.
  • Discovery and implementation of novel therapies to overcome known antimicrobial resistance mechanisms
    and restore susceptibility to conventional antibiotics. Examples might include studies on novel enzyme or efflux pump inhibitors, as well as studies aimed at understanding and overcoming the mechanisms controlling the generation of resistance.
  • Strategies for optimization of drug use, dosage and delivery of new drugs or drug combinations.
  • Strategies to inhibit or reduce the acquisition of resistance such as single molecular agents effective against multiple targets as well as therapeutics that enhance immune pathogen elimination, disrupt colonization, biofilm development, and virulence.

Following sub-topics are not in the purpose of the call:

  • Assessing the role of commensal flora in homeostasis and microbe’s pathogenicity, and elucidating how
    commensal organisms or probiotics can be used to prevent or treat infections.
  • Investigating the initial steps of the infection process.
  • Late stage clinical trials (Phase II and further).
