Launch of a New Funding Opportunity
Joint Programming Initiative Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR)
The CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity has partnered with 13 European states to launch the “InnovaResistance: Innovative approaches to address antibacterial resistance” joint programming initiative. This call is now open.
The dearth of new bactericidal or bacteriostatic drugs entering the clinic and the emergence of infections due to multi-antibiotic resistant bacteria requires international collaboration supported by substantial financial investment. New drugs and/or therapeutic approaches are urgently needed to control bacterial infections and safeguard the health of populations.
Aim of the Call
The primary aim of this joint call is to combine the resources and research strengths of multiple countries in order to better exploit novel approaches and mechanisms to overcome antibiotic resistance.
A minimum of three countries have to be represented among the 3-6 partners of each proposal.
There is a two-stage review process with an initial open call for pre-proposals due March 14, 2014, and a subsequent call by invitation for full proposals due July 21, 2014. Final funding decisions will be communicated in the fall of 2014.
For more detailed information about participating countries, detailed timelines and application instructions please consult the JPIAMR website. Call information and CIHR funding details will also be available shortly on the CIHR Funding Opportunities website.
