Short Call Abstract:

Proposals should address one of the two topics of the call:

Topic 1: Design novel or improved interventions to prevent, mitigate and /or treat fungal infections, which are resistant to treatments and/or are at risk of developing resistance.

For this topic the novel interventions  may include, but are not limited to:  prevention strategies, treatments based on new or existing compounds or technologies, improved or novel diagnostics or surveillance

Topic 2: Improve and/or, compare and/or evaluate strategies, technologies, treatments, methods, protocols or data collection based on existing interventions, aiming to prevent or reduce the emergence or spread of antibacterial or antifungal resistance or to treat/cure infections caused by resistant bacteria/fungi and recommend new policies.

Within this topic, projects should address one or more of the following subtopics:

  • Improve and/or compare and/ or evaluate the effectiveness of existing interventions (e.g. cost effectiveness clinical utility, socio-economic adaptability, reducing AMR emergence, spread, transmission, treatment etc.)
  • Identify the barriers to uptake, including factors leading to the success or failure of previously run pilot interventions, and when applicable design solutions to overcome them

The prevention and/or mitigation interventions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Treatment (e.g. wastewater, medical, technological etc.),
  • protocols
  • Social, societal and behavioural intervention (e.g. public awareness campaigns, provider audit and feedback, reimbursement penalties, prescription requirements, infection prevention and control programmes),
  • Stewardship efforts


SSH aspects (keywords/disciplines):

 sociology; behavioral studies; economics; law  


Specific participation requirements (optional):

The consortium must include a minimum of three  eligible project partners asking for funding from three  different eligible countries (including at least two amongst EU Member States or Associated Countries.
