The majority of emerging infectious diseases have their source in animals, and emergence occurs at the animal/human interface - infections in animals breach the species barrier to infect humans or vice-versa. Preventing the emergence of zoonoses at source by understanding and mitigating the factors, or determinants, that influence primary infection and transmission is an important aim within scope of this call.
In particular, this call will revolve around 2 axes:
This call will cover viral, bacterial, parasitic, prion and fungal infections. An important focus will be on the role of wildlife and other vectors (including arthropod) in the (re)-emergence and transmission of zoonotic pathogens to livestock. Insights in transmission (routes) might lead to appropriate disease surveillance and control, further contributing to animal health.
The consortium should involve 3 to 8 partners from at least three eligible countries. No more than two partners from the same country will be accepted within the same consortium. Subject to the rules of the various funders, public research partners, as well as private research organisations, private companies and associations may join the call. ANR will only fund the French partners of the selected projects. Selected projects will be funded for a period of up to three years. A detailed description of the eligibility requirements can be found on the ICRAD Website.
Submitted projects will be evaluated in two phases (pre-proposals/full proposals)
Call text and pre-proposal template can be found on the ICRAD submission site.
Pre-proposals should be submitted online on the ICRAD submission site (ANR will not directly accept any proposal submission).

The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
