Preliminary announcement of a Joint Transnational Call on Intestinal Microbiomics

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) is an active member of the JPI HDHL, a partnership of research funding agencies from across Europe and beyond which are working together to address the major societal challenge of healthy lifestyles and nutrition.

The JPI HDHL has developed a joint transnational call on Intestinal Microbiomics and has released a pre-announcement of this call.

The call will be officially launched on the 19 March 2015.

The call seeks proposals that will use innovative approaches to increase our knowledge of

This action will support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia for a period of 3 years. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is expected to be on 18 April 2015.
