This page announces the first international Call on infectious animal diseases within the framework of the ERA-NET Cofund on International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD). 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.
Consortia must include a minimum of 3 independent entities from a minimum of 3 different countries beeing eligible and requesting funding from EU Member States, Associated Countries or Regions participating in the co-funded call and a maximum of 6 independent entities. The consortium cannot include more than two partners from one country.
Applicants must respect eligibility rules of the call and the national/regional rules and regulations of their respective national/regional funding organisation as outlined in section 5.1 and Annex I of this document. In some cases additional application to the national/regional organisation is necessary. Applicants are strongly advised to check the national/regional regulations provided in Annex I and to contact their funding contact points.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 862605.
