Global call for innovative veterinary solutions for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in ruminants and aquaculture
DHSC’s Global Antimicrobial Resistance Innovation Fund (GAMRIF) and Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are continuing their joint work through InnoVet-AMR to launch a global call for innovative veterinary solutions for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in ruminants and aquaculture.
This work builds on GAMRIF and IDRC’s successful partnership through InnoVet-AMR 1.0. Details of InnoVet-AMR 1.0 can be found here.
InnoVet-AMR 2.0 is a 4-year, CA$26.3 million jointly funded partnership. The initiative is aimed at reducing the emerging risk that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in animals poses to global health and food security with a focus on low and middle income countries (LMICs).
The two main objectives are:
- Support research that will identify and develop prophylactic and therapeutic innovative veterinary solutions, including vaccines, to improve health, while reducing the use of antimicrobials in ruminants and aquaculture operations in LMICs;
- Build effective gender balanced partnerships to better contribute to discovery and development of innovative veterinary solutions to reduce the use of antimicrobials in ruminants and aquaculture operations in LMICs.
This is a global call for Research Proposals titled Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance (InnoVet-AMR) 2 in Food-Producing animals: Ruminants and Aquaculture.
The call invites research proposals focused on veterinary solutions, where new product-oriented solutions would significantly reduce the therapeutic and/or non-therapeutic use of antimicrobials in LMICs in ruminants and/or aquaculture production. These solutions should target the prevention and control of bacterial infectious diseases of importance in LMICs and the reduction of the use of antimicrobials while considering gender equity and inclusion and demonstrating commitment to climate change mitigation.
The deadline for applications is Monday 30th October 2023. Please see further details and apply via this link in English and note that it is also available in French and Spanish.
