International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD)
Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) are supporting UK participation in a transnational European call for research on infectious animal diseases.
The ERA-NET Cofund International Coordination of Research on Infectious Animal Diseases (ICRAD) is a new ERA-Net Cofund Action under Horizon 2020 that will build upon the achievements of the ERA-NET EMIDA (Emerging and Major Infectious Diseases of Animals) and the ERA-NET ANIHWA (Animal Health and Welfare).
The Joint Call – with an indicative budget of approximately 23.7M€ – brings together twenty-two funding organisations from nineteen countries. It covers the major groups of infectious diseases of animals (including fishes and bees), and infections by viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal pathogens, prions, and multifactorial diseases, with particular emphasis on African Swine Fever and Animal Influenza.
BBSRC is making €2M available for this call.
