Vi ser stipendiet som en ”igångsättningshjälp” till forskare och doktorander/blivande doktorander som ännu inte är etablerade och som presenterar en intressant idé. Medlen får dock inte användas till resor, översättning eller inköp av dator/programvara.

Om ansökan till stipendiet

Ansökan ska innehålla följande uppgifter:

•    Sökandens namn och personnummer, adress, telefonnummer och e-post.

Disrupting drug resistance using innovative design – JPIAMR

In line with the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, this call will focus on tackling the rising threat of antimicrobial resistance. Declining effectiveness of existing antimicrobials together with the low and insufficient number of promising new antimicrobials in the pipeline stresses the urgency to develop new protocols and innovative approaches for effective delivery and use of the already existing antimicrobials. This call aims to improve the treatment of bacterial and fungal infections (including co-infection) and/or the prevention of the emergence/spread of resistance in humans, animals or plants through the improvement of the efficacy, specificity, delivery, combinations and/or repurposing of drugs and plant protection agents.

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.

Closing dates (parallel applications are needed for Swedish participants):

Consortium application to JPIAMR: 8 March 2022

Swedish project leader’s application in Prisma: 15 March 2022
