JPI HDHL is pleased to pre-announce the launch of the new joint funding activity “Nutrition-responsiveness of the immune system: interplay between infectious diseases and diet-related metabolic diseases and the potential for food-based solutions (NUTRIMMUNE)” expected on February 15th, 2022.
The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that gain a better understanding of the interactions between nutrition and immunity within the context of its interplay between infectious diseases and diet-related metabolic diseases. Research in this area is expected to provide insights that allow the development and scientific substantiation of intervention strategies for sustaining good health through all life stages and treating nutrition-related diseases.
Proposals should focus on one or both of the following topics:
• Establishing the cause-and-effect relationship between nutrition, immune function and infectious diseases in the context of diet-related metabolic disorders.
• Development of innovative food solutions.
Currently, 10 funding agencies from 8 different countries intend to support this call to fund transnational research projects in the field of nutrition, infectious diseases and diet-related metabolic diseases.
The NUTRIMMUNE call will consist of a single-stage submission procedure followed by a rebuttal stage. The deadline for the submission of the proposals is April 21st, 2022.
To know more about this new call, please check the pre-announcement, which also includes information on the participating countries/organisations and conditions for application.
