Welcome to the online application process for the competitive Global Call for Research Proposals: Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance (InnoVet-AMR).

Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance (InnoVet-AMR) is a four-year, CA$27.9 million partnership between IDRC and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). The initiative is aimed at reducing the emerging risk that AMR in animals poses to global health and food security.

The InnoVet-AMR initiative is divided into two themes focused on reducing the use of antibiotics in the livestock (poultry and swine) and aquaculture sectors in low and middle income countries. The main goal of both themes is to develop innovative veterinary solutions, focusing on product development, to reduce the therapeutic (prevention and control) and non-therapeutic (growth promotion) use of antibiotics, while still protecting animal health and welfare.

The global competitive call focuses on the development of veterinary solutions, where new or improved product oriented-solutions would significantly reduce the therapeutic and/or non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in low and middle income countries in poultry, swine, and/or aquaculture production. These solutions should target the prevention and control of infectious diseases of importance in low and middle income countries and the reduction of the use of antibiotics as growth promoters.

Applications are due Wednesday September 12 at 11:00 am EDT (Ottawa); 3:00 pm Greenwich Mean Time
