ERA-Net JPIAMR-ACTION Transnational Network Call (2022)

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a serious threat to global health. This JPIAMR Network Call focuses on supporting international collaborative actions within the context of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda priority topics of Diagnostics and Surveillance. The overarching goal of the priority topic, Diagnostics, is to stimulate the design, development, evaluation, and implementation of diagnostic tests for the treatment and prevention of infections, particularly those caused by antimicrobial-resistant organisms. Within the priority topic of Surveillance, the overarching goal is to optimise surveillance systems to understand the drivers and burden of antimicrobial resistance from a One Health perspective.

Additional Information

Networks should develop and implement activities targeting AMR and focusing within the priority topics of Diagnostics and Surveillance in at least one of the One Health domains (human health, animal health, agriculture, and the environment). Applicants are encouraged to bridge multiple One Health areas if needed. Networks may build upon new or existing global collaborations/partnerships. Although networks may align with projects already conducted by previous JPIAMR actions in the areas of diagnostics and surveillance, new networks can also apply. Applicants are invited to tackle one or more of the suggested focal areas below:  

  1. Identify actions that will improve the diagnostics and surveillance of AMR (in humans and/or animals and/or agriculture and the environment).
  2. Identify actions needed to support the development of new tools, technologies and systems for diagnosis and surveillance. 
  3. Identify novel or existing data platforms that can be developed or improved to aid international alignment and support the use of surveillance data and/or diagnostics to improve prescription of narrow-spectrum antimicrobials and support alignment with stewardship programmes.
  4. Identify or assess user needs for tools, technologies, or systems for diagnostics and/or surveillance in appropriate One Health settings. 
  5. Identify the data collection needed to understand inequality in access to diagnostics and how socio-economic factors contribute to this inequality. 
  6. Extend or continue activities of previously funded JPIAMR networks within Surveillance

Important note:

Under HRB national rules the following additional eligibility criteria apply:

  • For the Focal Areas of the network, Human Health must be the primary One Health domain.

Only the network coordinator should submit a proposal. A network coordinator should be an expert in the development, optimisation, or use of diagnostic and/or surveillance tools, technologies, and systems. The network coordinator must be eligible to receive funding from a funding organization participating in the call.

Please refer to Diagnostics and Surveillance Networks

Networks should bring together partners from research laboratories, research institutions, and/or stakeholder organisations from different disciplines and sectors to accomplish their objectives. Networks can involve partners from JPIAMR member countries and also partners from countries that are not members of the JPIAMR. 

If successful, a network coordinator  from Ireland will be funded by the Health Research Board up to the maximum amount for the call. Applicants applying for funding from Ireland must be based at an eligible HRB Host Institution. Additional funding for organising start up and final events is not available.

  1. Networks must involve at least fifteen partners from at least ten different countries. In addition at least three of the partners must come from three different countries which funding agencies are participating in the call (Estonia, France, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Moldova, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom).
  2. Networks must be led by an individual (coordinator) eligible for funding by one of the participating funding organisations (in accordance with the terms and conditions of the relevant national funding organisations, please refer to the Call text at Diagnostics and Surveillance Networks
  3. An individual cannot act as coordinator for more than one JPIAMR network in the present call.
  4. An individual can be partner of more than one  JPIAMR network in the present call.
  5. Networks must include at least three early career researchers (ECRs). 

JPIAMR aims to promote diversity in research. Networks applying for funding are therefore strongly encouraged to consider the following aspects: 

  • Gender and geographical diversity among the network partners.
  • Inclusion of stakeholders and end-users as network partners. 

To strengthen the cooperation between the European Research Area and third countries, and to overcome the fragmentation of research and innovation in Europe, inclusion of researchers from low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and Widening countries are encouraged, in particular, when the expected network outcomes are relevant for end-users and stakeholders from those countries.

Applicants from Ireland must read the HRB Guidance notes and FAQ’s for the scheme. Eligibility requirements from applicants from Ireland will apply.

Network coordinators in successful projects will be funded by the individual JPIAMR funding organisation(s) within their country.


Application forms must be submitted to the Joint Call Secretariat by the Network coordinator on the online submission website
