Pre-Announcement of a co-funded Call for Transnational Collaborative Research Projects: “International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD)”

Deadline for Submission is 13 Febuary 2020

The ERA-NET Cofund International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD) is a new ERA-Net Cofund Action under Horizon 2020 that will build upon the achievements of the ERA-NET EMIDA (Emerging and Major Infectious Diseases of Animals) and the ERA-NET ANIHWA (Animal Health and Welfare).

 

The key mission of ICRAD is to:

  •  support cross-cutting research to improve animal health and welfare, with associated benefits towards public health, the environment and the economy.
  •  connect research partners with different but complementary scientific and technological expertise to maximise resources and share risks, costs and skills. The partnership between industrial and academic researchers, where appropriate, will improve and accelerate the development of technological solutions for the benefit of animal health and welfare.

 

Research and innovation jointly funded by the European Commission and the ICRAD partners would seek concerted approaches towards the development of novel and improved insturments to address and control infectious diseases, particularly regarding novel detection, intervention and prevention strategies. 

 

Aim and Scope of the call

The overall focus of the ICRAD co-funded call is to support cross-cutting research to improve animal health and by consequence animal welfare, focusing on key epidemic and (re)-emerging threats and developing novel vaccine technology platforms and diagnostics. The ICRAD co-funded call covers the major groups of infectious diseases of animals (including fishes and bees), and infections by viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal pathogens, prions, and multifactoral diseases, with particluar emphasis on ASF and animal influenza.

The pre-proposals should address on of the following research areas:

  •  Research area 1: Improved understanding of epidemic and emerging infectious animal diseases
  •  Research area 2: Generic technology platforms for producing novel and/or improved vaccines
  •  Research area 3: High-throuchput, rapid, accurate and easy to use in-field detection technologies

 

The following topics will be excluded from funding:

  •  Research leading to vaccine development for ASF
  •  Food-borne zoonoses
  •  Research on development of new antimicrobials

 

Eligibility

In this call, ICRAD expects proposals for collaborative research, development and innovation from transnational consortia composed of members from at least three different countries. National and regional elibigibility rules must be followed.
