ERA-NET JPIAMR-ACTION Call for Joint Transnational Research Proposals (2021) “One Health interventions to prevent or reduce the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance (AMR)”

The European One Health Action Plan against AMR encourages the EU and its Member States to deliver innovative, effective and sustainable responses to AMR, especially to reduce the emergence and spread of AMR inside and outside the EU. This call, funded under the ERA-NET JPIAMR-ACTION, is the 13th JPIAMR transnational call for research projects.

This call advocates for a One Health approach. Proposals should focus on at least two One Health settings (human, animal, environment).

Projects should be implemented into relevant geographic areas, including into resource-limited settings, with a One Health perspective. Projects are encouraged to include transdisciplinary research teams, in which involvement of the social sciences is also encouraged. Low and middle income country (LMIC) led collaborations at global and regional level are welcomed.
