ERA-Net ICRAD: One Health Approach to Zoonoses Research and Innovation

WHAT CAN YOU APPLY FOR?

Research projects within the two research areas of the call.

WHO CAN APPLY?

Researchers at Swedish Universities, research institutes and public agencies with research assignment, approved by Formas as an administrating organisation.

HOW MUCH CAN YOU APPLY FOR?

Maximum 300 000 Euro per project, or 500 000 Euro if the Swedish project also includes a project coordinator.

This is the second transnational collaborative research call of the ERA-Net International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD).

The overall goal of ICRAD is to support cross-cutting research and innovation to better understand zoonoses focusing on the animal-human-environment interface and to develop novel vaccine and diagnostics technology platforms to improve animal health and by consequence animal welfare.

The objective of this second call is to increase preparedness and improve the ability to respond to (re)-emerging zoonotic disease threats and contribute to improved animal and public health. This will be done through studies focusing on (re)-emergence of pathogens with zoonotic potential, understanding animal host-pathogen interactions and the immune response, and by developing detection and prevention platforms.

Proposals should address one of the following research areas:

Research area 1: Improved understanding of animal-human-environment interface

  • Pathogen (Re)-Emergence and Host Adaptation
  • Host/Pathogen Interactions

Research area 2: Detection and Prevention

  • Vaccine Technology Platforms
  • Diagnostic Technology Platforms

Application

The application process is two-phased (pre- and full proposal phases). The pre-proposal must be submitted electronically via the ERA-NET ICRAD submission tool no later than 15th of December 2021
