First Call opening date 31st January 2020

The first international Call on infectious animal diseases of the ERA-NET Cofund on International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD) is open.
ERA-NET ICRAD builds on the successful work of two predecessor ERA-NETs (EMIDA and ANIHWA) and the global network of animal health STAR-IDAZ under Framework Programme 7 (FP7). The main purpose of this Call, co-funded with the European Commission (EC), is to support multi-disciplinary research to improve animal health and welfare, addressing some of the key epidemic and (re)-emerging threats e.g. African Swine Fever and Animal Influenza, and developing novel detection and intervention strategies.
