Research project grant for international collaboration within antimicrobial resistance (JPIAMR)
The purpose of this grant is to support international collaboration within Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR), investigating diagnostics and surveillance strategies that can be used to detect and monitor antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Sweden, via the Swedish Research Council (and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency), is one of 15 countries participating in the 9th JPIAMR call, which rewards research of the highest scientific quality in international competition.

JPIAMR: Diagnostics and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance
Individual researcher included as one of no more than two Swedish project leaders in a consortium of partners from no less than three participating countries. Only researchers at an administrating organisation approved by the Swedish Research Council may apply.
Maximum 300 000 EUR for all Swedish partners together
Full proposal/Full application: Mid-June 2019. Eligible consortia will be notified of exact dates and times.Publication of grant award
Start of grant period
Grant applications within JPIAMR are made in a two-stage procedure, where a simplified version of the application, known as a pre-proposal, is first submitted. Applicants whose pre-proposals are approved shall then submit a full proposal. Both the pre-proposal and full proposal are peer reviewed, and ranked in competition with other applications.
The application to the JPIAMR consortium call shall be submitted by the research consortium’s international coordinator.
As project leader representing a Swedish partner in the research consortium, you must submit the corresponding applications (Pre-proposal/project outline and Full proposal/full application) via the Swedish Research Council’s application system Prisma in parallel with the international coordinator submitting the consortium application.
The applicant for a research project grant must be a participant in a JPIAMR consortium with 3-6 partners from no less than three participating countries. The full eligibility criteria for the design of the consortium are available in the call text on JPIAMR's website. You must set aside adequate time for the project throughout the grant period, with a scope (activity level) that corresponds to at least 20 per cent of a full-time equivalent. You must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or a corresponding foreign degree, awarded no later than the deadline for this call. The degree award date we use is the date when you fulfilled all the criteria for a doctoral degree, such as mandatory courses, oral defence and an approved doctoral thesis. For applicants with Swedish doctoral degrees, the award date listed in Ladok applies.
Grants from the Swedish Research Council shall be administered by a Swedish university or HEI or another Swedish public organisation that fulfils our criteria for administrating organisations. To apply, your organisation must therefore be approved as an administrating organisation. Please note that as a consequence, Swedish researchers working for a company cannot be financed, and should therefore not submit an application to the Swedish Research Council, even if they are part of a consortium application.
If you are awarded a grant, you must be employed by the administrating organisation at the start of and throughout the grant period and any additional availability period, unless the Swedish Research Council approves an exception. The employment must cover no less than 20 per cent of a full-time equivalent. You do not have to be employed by the administrating organisation at the time of applying.
Costs and grant amounts
Grants may be applied for to finance all types of project-related costs, such as salaries (including your own salary, however no more than corresponding to your rate of activity in the project), premises, operating costs (such as consumables, travel including stays at research facilities, publication costs and minor equipment), plus depreciation. Grants may not be used for scholarships. If a doctoral student participates, project funds may not be paid out as salary for the period when the doctoral student is teaching.
For Swedish participation in a consortium, the maximum amount that may be applied for is 300 000 EUR. The maximum amount for all Swedish participants together is therefore 300 000 EUR in total.
You may apply for a grant to cover 3 years, starting from January 2020. The first payment will be made in December 2019 at the earliest.
The consortium shall submit a joint application in JPIAMR’s application system.
You as the Swedish partner and project leader in a JPIAMR consortium must also register in parallel a corresponding application electronically in Prisma, which is the Swedish Research Council’s application system. Please note that for practical reasons, the parallel call in Prisma for you as the Swedish partner will close a few days later than in JPIAMR’s application system. This applies for both the project outline and the full application.
You create your application in Prisma by filling in the text fields, uploading information from your personal account, and attaching the appendices requested.
To enable you to apply, your organisation must have been approved as an administrating organisation and have created an organisation account in Prisma.
What must the application contain?
Foreign experts are involved in the scientific evaluation of the applications. To ensure fair and equitable assessment and efficient processing, please complete your application in English.
Sections of the application
The application form in Prisma includes the following tabs (applicable to both the Project outline and the Full application):
- Descriptive information
- Research description
- Administrating organisation
- Participants (only administrators in this call, see below)
Descriptions of the information requested under each tab follow below. Mandatory information is marked with an asterisk (*) in Prisma.
Under this tab, please fill in the Swedish and English project name and select SCB codes and key words. Please also fill in the abstract and popular science description as instructed below.
The abstract shall include a brief description of:
- what is to be done: purpose and aim
- how the research is to be carried out: project organisation, time plan and the scientific methods to be used
- what is important about the planned research
The abstract shall provide a summary guide to the purpose and implementation of the research. Please use wording that ensures persons with another subject specialisation can understand the information.
The abstract may cover a maximum of 1 500 characters including blank spaces (approximately one third of an A4 page in Arial, font size 11, single line spacing).
Popular science description
Describe the project in such a way that a person who is not familiar with the subject can understand it. Describe what is to be done and why, and explain in what way the new knowledge may be important.
The popular science description is an important tool when we inform about the research financed by the Swedish Research Council. If we grant your application, we reserve the right to use the description for information purposes.
Note: The popular science description must be written in Swedish, unlike the rest of the application. For the project outline, the popular science description may be very brief. For the full application, the popular science description must be detailed and able to be used for information purposes.
The description may cover a maximum of 4 500 characters, including blank spaces (approximately one A4 page in Arial, font size 11, single row spacing).Research description
Under this tab, please describe any ethical considerations (only for full applications) and attach the consortium’s joint application.
