Update: 19. March 2020
Deadline extension due to COVID-19
We like to inform you that due to the Covid-19 pandemia we will postpone the deadline of pre-proposal submission for the AquaticPollutants Call.
The new deadline for submission of pre-proposals for joint transnational projects is 18th May 2020 17:00 CEST. For further questions please contact the Call Secretariat.
Welcome to the Joint Transnational Call 2020 “Risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in water resources (AquaticPollutants)”.
Within the framework of AquaticPollutants the Joint Programm Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are working closely together.
The overall goal of the proposed ERA-NET Cofund AquaticPollutants is to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in the field of clean and healthy aquatic ecosystems and to leverage untapped potential in the collaboration between the freshwater, marine and health research areas. The ERA-NET Cofund AquaticPollutants is a network of 32 ministries, authorities and funding organisations responsible for funding research and innovation projects in the field of clean and healthy aquatic ecosystems from 26 countries.
A multidisciplinary approach has been set up, which brings together the research needs of the freshwater sector, the marine sector and the health sector to carry out a Joint Transnational Call (JTC) and complementing Additional Activities. This call will make the research communities of those three research fields work together and create synergies for joint approaches.
This call comprises three main themes:
Theme 1 - Environmental behaviour of emerging pollutants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems (“Measuring”)
Theme 2 - Risk Assessment and Management of emerging pollutants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria from aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine) to human health and environment (“Evaluating”)
Theme 3 - Strategies to reduce emerging pollutants, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine) (“Taking Actions”)
RULES OF PARTICIPATION
A total amount of approx. € 24 million has been blocked by the 32 Funding Partners. Each participant in a funded consortium will be funded by his or her national partner organisation. In addition, researchers based in other countries are able to participate with their own resources.
Proposals need to involve eligible research partners from at least three participating countries. Projects will be funded for up to 36 months.
Applications for funding within this call can only be submitted through this platform. You can download the relevant call documents from this page in the menu on the left hand side!
If you want to register yourself as a coordinator for a transnational research project, please thoroughly read the Call Announcements, National Regulations and the Guideline for Proposal Submission beforehand! This will help to ensure your planned project fits within the focus of this call. You may find these documents on the left side of this webpage ("CALL DOCUMENTS").
Only coordinators can upload a proposal. The coordinator needs to register all project partners.
