Joint transnational call Intestinal Microbiomics open for proposals

The Joint Programming Initiative 'A Healthy Diet for A Healthy Life' (JPI HDHL) has launched the transnational call for research proposals on Intestinal Microbiomics. Deadline for pre-proposals is April 28, 2015. The call will be coordinated by ZonMw. The anticipated budget from ZonMw is 1,500,000. Funding is up to 500,000. Research organisations or other higher education institutions, such as universities academic hospitals and non-university public research institutes may apply. Participation of a private party/private parties is required.

The main objective of the Joint Action “Intestinal Microbiomics” is to support multidisciplinary transnational research consortia using innovative and scientific approaches to increase knowledge on:

• The short-term and long-term functional effects of diet, dietary patterns and dietary constituents on human intestinal microbiota.

• The functional impact of diet-related variations in the intestinal microbiota on human health and/or the development of non-communicable chronic diseases.

The overall vision is to develop dietary interventions or guidance for modulation of the intestinal microbiome to promote health and/or prevent the development of non-communicable chronic diseases. The program should generate new knowledge to support health maintenance and/or new treatments.

The submission deadline for full proposals is September 1, 2015.
