JPIAMR funding call: Unravelling the dynamics of transmission and selection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

By Caroline Channing

The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) has launched its 3rd call for proposals, with a total budget of €30million, and a deadline of 21st March, 2016. JPIAMR aims to foster collaboration and coordination of research programmes and design a future research strategy on AMR areas that can benefit from joint efforts across Europe. 

'JPI-EC-AMR ERA-NET Cofund Call on Transmission Dynamics' is the first ever call on transmission dynamics. Research in this field is neglected, a fact which was demonstrated by JPIAMR’s research mapping across 19 countries from 2007-2013 which showed that only 9% of the total amount of research funding in this period had gone to projects within the field of transmission.

In this call, JPIAMR has joined forces with the European Commission under the ERA-NET Co-fund scheme to generate a total fund of over 24 million euro (for all participating countries) with a 6-million-euro European Commission “topping up” fund. 


About the funding

Call title: “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.”

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

Total budget: 30M EUR
