Call for concept notes: Collaborative One Health Research Initiative on Epidemics
This Call will fund multi-institutional One Health research projects in known geographic hotspots for emerging epidemics as well as regions which are characterized by human, animal, and environmental drivers of infectious epidemics, such as unsustainable environmental and land-use patterns, loss of biodiversity, and increasing interaction between humans and wildlife.
Applications are encouraged to address at least one of the following research themes:
- Understanding and addressing intersectoral drivers of epidemics
- Identifying and developing structural, systemic, and policy level interventions
- Strengthening data systems for enhanced multisectoral communication, coordination, and collaboration
Eligible projects will be undertaken by multi-institutional research consortia, comprised of at least two organizations with experience in leading or working within consortia or networks of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, and in supporting communities of practice or centres of excellence. Consortia are expected to consist of researchers, community organizations, practitioners, and policy actors that will work toward achieving commonly defined research objectives, assessing progress of work, and evaluating project results.
If you are eligible for this opportunity we welcome you to submit an application.
