Matchmaking event infectious diseases 2018


The focus of this event is on monitoring and control of infectious diseases in animals and/or humans (One Health).  As about 60% of all pathogens that threaten humans originate from animals we also want to call upon researchers working on infectious diseases in animal and human health to join forces on cross cutting themes like zoonoses, translational research, antimicrobial resistance and food safety (food from animal origin).

Project ideas can cover one or more of the topics listed below:

  • Rapid and more precise diagnostics and tools for the monitoring of health and infection
  • Novel methods that prevent or cure infection and/or empower the host's general defense against infection
    • New and improved vaccines (including veterinary autogenous vaccines) or easily adaptable vaccine platforms
    • New delivery methods causing less stress (e.g., oral delivery of vaccines)
    • New feed additives/drugs

Participants can prepare consortia and project applications for national and/or EU-funding.  For the latter we specifically refer to the following calls in WP2019-2020 of Horizon2020 (SC1 and SC2):

  • SC1-BHC-06-2020S: Digital diagnostics – developing tools for clinical decisions integrating in vitro and in vivo diagnostics
  • SC1-BHC-13-2019: Mining big data for early detection of infectious disease threats driven by climate change and other factors
  • SC1-BHC-14-2019: Stratified host-directed approaches to improve prevention, treatment and/or cure of infectious diseases
  • LC-SFS-19-2018-2019: Climate-smart and resilient farming (A. [2018] Microclimate management: from field to landscape (RIA))
  • SFS-11B-2019: Alternatives to antimicrobials
  • SFS-31A-2019: ICT-enabled agri-food systems
  • SFS-31C-2019: International veterinary vaccinology
  • SFS-02-2020: Healthy livestock gut ecosystem for sustainable production
  • SFS-10-2020: Epidemiology of contagious animal diseases
