The ANR is associated to the ERA-NET ANIHWA to launch a first transnational call for funding research on animal health and welfare of farm animals, including fish and bees. This programme is a continuation of ERA-NET EMIDA.
Sixteen countries are participating to this call for proposals: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy (participation pending), Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.
Research Consortia are invited to submit pre-proposals related to the four (4) topics:
Please note that not all participating countries fund all topics. France will fund all four topics with no priorities.
Each project proposal (pre- and full proposal) must involve a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of ten (10) partners from at least three (3) and a maximum of eight (8) different participating countries. Consortium members from non-participating countries are welcome, but with own secured resources.
Proposals tendered with support (financial or in kind) from industry, or other non-ANIHWA funding bodies are encouraged. Funding will be awarded for a maximum of three years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects.
This call will be managed by the ANIHWA call office, which is based in Jülich, Germany.
All proposals should be submitted online via the submission website before the respective deadlines (pre-proposals November 16th, 2012, 17:00 CET; full proposals February 15th, 2013, 17:00 CET).
Each French partner of the selected projects will sign a grant agreement with the ANR. Therefore, he/she will adhere to the methods stipulated in "Regulations relative to the means of allocation of ANR funds", which may be consulted on the ANR website.
