The European Commission for the control of foot-and-mouth disease (EuFMD) is launching the 8th call for application of the EuFMD Fund for Applied Research (FAR).
The EuFMD FAR aims to support small and applied research projects to improve the surveillance, risk analysis or reduction, and preparedness for FMD and similar transboundary animal diseases. The themes of the EuFMD FAR calls for application are identified by the EuFMD Standing Technical Committee, and the Special Committee on Surveillance and Applied Research as key research gaps to be addressed.
For this call, study proposals will aim at Evaluating the performance of surveillance for clinical FMD among small ruminants. The project should be field-based with the geographical focus in European Neighbourhood countries i.e. North and West Africa, the Middle East, and the southeast European Neighbourhood (the latter includes Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Pakistan).
Up to three proposals will be supported, for total funding of circa 50,000 euros.
Deadline for receipt of applications : 19 June 2020, at 5pm CEST
