The Institute of Infection and Immunity (III), the Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR) and the Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) in collaboration with the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) partners
5th Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR)
In order to protect and prolong the usefulness of existing antimicrobials, increasing cross-sectoral efforts are needed to rationalize their use and misuse in human and animal health and food production settings. Key measures to achieve this are to improve existing and implement new evidence-based control, prevention, stewardship and intervention strategies to reduce the risk of acquisition, development and transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and infection caused by these pathogens, in hospitalized patients, outpatients, healthy people, animals and the environment.
- The total amount available for the Canadian component of successful projects is $3,000,000, enough to fund approximately three (3) to five (5) grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. CIHR will contribute as follows for the Canadian component of the project for a maximum of three (3) years. For applications with:
- One Canadian participant in the consortium: up to $200,000 per year for maximum three (3) years.
- Two Canadian participants in the consortium: up to $250,000 per year for maximum three (3) years.
- One Canadian coordinator in the consortium: up to $250,000 per year for maximum three (3) years.
- One Canadian coordinator + one Canadian participant in the consortium: up to $300,000 per year for maximum three (3) years.
- Note: The title of “coordinator” is used by the Joint Programming Initiative secretariat to distinguish the person acting as point of contact and submitting the proposal.
Maximum of three years

If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
IF INVITED: PI to submit copy of application and completed OR5 form to: email@example.com
IF INVITED: Canadian applicants invited to submit a full application must complete a CIHR application and submit it using ResearchNet in addition to the Full Application submitted to the Joint Action Secretariat. The deadline for submission of this application is the same as the Full Application deadline to the Joint Action Secretariat. The purpose of this additional application to CIHR is to provide CIHR with an Operating Budget for the project, with the amounts quoted in Canadian dollars, and a complete justification for funds requested.
Information For Co-applicants
If you need to meet a deadline set by the lead institution for this opportunity, please ensure that you provide the Office of Research with at least five days in advance of the lead institution’s deadline to review the application, or your proposed component of the project. Please be in touch with the Office of Research (contact information below) ahead of the deadline if it looks like it will be difficult for you to submit all the required documentation on time (i.e. budget, proposal, OR-5 Form).
