The three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are pleased to pre-announce a joint transnational call for research and innovation projects on risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in the water resources.
The call will support research and innovation projects that establish integrated and cross-sectoral approaches for risk-management combining the research areas of contaminants of emerging concerns (CECs), pathogens and antimicrobial resistance. The whole water cycle, from the source through the river basins and eventually to the estuaries and oceans, has to be considered. The projected call budget is approximately 25 million Euro (co-funded by European Commission).
The provisional timetable announced is:
- February 17th 2020: Call opening
- April 16th 2020: Deadline pre-proposals
- June 2020: Selection of pre-proposals
- August 2020: Deadline full proposals
- End 2020 – Beginning 2021: Project start
