Project Description


The 22 partners of the Call Board of the 2nd international ICRAD Call for Proposals on are proud to present the call on:

“One Health Approach to Zoonoses Research and Innovation”

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

The objective of this funding 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 include research on one of the following topics:

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

The Joint Call 2021 follows a two-stage procedure with a first deadline for the submission of pre-proposals on 15th December 2021 – 3 p.m. (CET).
