Multinational and collaborative research projects on human infectious diseases research, March 17th

With this fourth call, Infect-ERA aims to fund transnational and translational research, bringing together basic, applied and technology-driven research approaches of a broad variety of research topics regarding human infectious diseases (ID). This call will enable multinational, collaborative research projects that address a specific topic of human infectious diseases research.

The two main research themes, which are equal in relevance for this call:

  • The host-pathogen interactions, with regard to clinically relevant microbial clones, focused on host susceptibility (e.g. innate immune response, populations at risk, etc.).
  • Development of innovative strategies for the diagnostic and treatment of high clinically relevant microbial infections; optimisation of antimicrobial therapy in an individual patient and development of biomarkers to allow individual response prediction.

Proposals with topics HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis are not in the scope of the call.

Please note that Italian researchers have to complete a pre-submission eligibility form (see call documents).

The deadline for submitting pre-proposals is March 17th, 2016 (17:00 CET).
