JPIAMR-Call: AMR diagnostics and surveillance

The 16th JPIAMR call is now open. For Swiss project partners, a budget of CHF 600,000 is available.

To take action against the growing global threat of increasing resistance in pathogenic organisms, and the spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), this call aims to fund research projects developing novel or improving existing strategies, tools, technologies and methods for diagnosis and/or One Health AMR surveillance.

Through this call, the ERA-NET JPIAMR-ACTION intends to create and reinforce the collaboration between research partners coming from different countries and different fields of expertise to promote research on antimicrobial resistance. The results of the funded projects should contribute to improved understanding, monitoring, detection and mitigation of infection and AMR, or optimisation of antimicrobial use where efforts to curb AMR will have a global impact on human, animal and plant health and food safety and security.

In the scope of this call, antimicrobials include antibiotics, antifungals and disinfectants (biocides).

The call includes 23 funding organisations from 18 countries. The total estimated call budget is almost 19 million Euro.

The project teams should comprise three to six partners from different countries. SNSF has set aside 600,000 Swiss francs for the Swiss partners in these teams.

Applicants from Switzerland must be eligible for the SNSF's project funding scheme. Along with the JPIAMR application, they need to submit an administrative application to the SNSF via mySNF (under Project funding/Partnerships/JPIAMR).

Proposals will be evaluated in a two-step procedure (pre-proposals/full proposals), and applicants have up to 07 March 2023, 2 pm (CET) to submit their pre-proposals.

A webinar about the call is taking place on 24 January 2023 at 14.00 CET. Please register to get access information.

A match-making tool has been created for applicants, to facilitate networking and the creation of consortia. The tool can be consulted for several purposes. The tool will be launched on 10 January 2023.
