Announcement of the third multilateral call for research
projects within the European ERA-NET PathoGenoMics
“Transnational pathogenomics: Prevention, diagnosis, treatment
and monitoring of infectious diseases in humans”
The purpose of the call is to generate joint European research and development activities. Joint projects, with a maximum of 6 participants from a minimum of 3 ERA-NET PARTNER countries, must include participants from both academia and clinics or industry. A proportion of the funding will be reserved to support projects headed by young scientists. Funding will be granted for a maximum of three years. Submission of proposals will be in two steps: The deadline for submitting pre-proposals was 15 March 2010, and full proposals must be submitted by 8th July 2010. Projects are expected to start at the beginning of 2011.
The following PathoGenoMics PARTNER organisations will participate in the call:
- the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), Austria
- the National Agency for Research (ANR), France
- the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Germany
- the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) and the Hungarian Academy of Science (HAS), Hungary
- the Chief Scientist Office, Ministry of Health (CSO-MOH), Israel
- the Science and Technology Foundation (FCT), Portugal
- the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (MHEST), Slovenia
- the Ministry of Education and Science (MICINN), Spain
A Research Marketplace will be implemented in the PathoGenoMics website in order to facilitate the exchange of research ideas and the effective planning of collaborative projects, as well as to foster the assembly of eligible consortia and the integration of partners who have not been involved in multilateral consortia so far. All potential project partners are invited to register in this electronic tool and submit an EoI (Expression of Interest). Registration will allow them to submit short abstracts and make contributions to the “offers” and “wanted” section.
