1st ICRAD Joint Cofund Call

Basic Information

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). Research and innovation jointly funded by the European Commission (EC) and the ICRAD partners would seek concerted approaches towards the development of novel and improved instruments to address and control infectious diseases, particularly regarding novel detection, intervention and prevention strategies.
