NCN together with the JPIAMR Network is pleased to announce a new call for international research projects on antimicrobial resistance. Funding may be applied for by international research consortia composed of at least 3 research teams from at least 3 different countries participating in the call, with at least 2 from EU member states or associated countries. The principal investigator of the Polish research team must be at least a PhD holder.

The call for proposals is addressed in particular to the research teams applying the One Health approach to:

  • to understand the impact of interventions on the development and transmission of antibiotic resistance and
  • to design, implement, evaluate, and compare interventions that will have a true impact on preventing or reducing the development and transmission of antibiotic resistance in and between the different One Health settings (human, animal, environment).

Twenty one countries will participate in the call: Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia Finland, France, Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Israel, Canada, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova, Germany, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Hungary, United Kingdom and Italy.

The call will support research projects that have the potential for impact in the areas where the risk and burden of AMR are greatest, such as low and middle income countries (LMIC) in Asia and Africa. The participation of the partners from the LMIC will be funded by the International Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Solutions (ICARS) from Denmark, International Development Research Centre (IDRC) from Canada and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

The estimated call budget is 24.9 million EUR. The Polish research teams participating in the call will be funded by the National Science Centre (NCN), which has allocated 500,000 EUR.

Pre-proposals should be submitted by16 March 2021, 12 p.m. (CET).
