The French National Research Agency, in partnership with 14 countries (Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Israel, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden) is launching a ninth joint call for proposals through the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR). This initiative aims to promote international research on antimicrobial resistance.
Funding will be awarded for a maximum of 3 years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects.
This call will fund joint transnational research projects addressing the development of diagnostic and surveillance tools, technologies and methods to detect antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Projects should address the diagnosis of AMR infections in clinical and veterinary settings, or the surveillance of AMR in humans, animals and the environment.
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. In response to this challenges, the JPIAMR is pleased to announce this joint transnational call for proposals for innovative research projects on new or improved diagnostic and surveillance strategies, tools, technologies and methods. The call will support research projects that also have the potential for impact in areas where the risk and burden of AMR is greatest, such as 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.
Projects considered for funding will involve fundamental, translational research, with the exception of clinical trials.
Project proposals should aim to either:
