Cambridge Global Challenges


Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance (InnoVet-AMR) seeks proposals for research that will develop innovative veterinary solutions focused on product development to reduce therapeutic and prevent non-therapeutic antimicrobial (AMR) use by farmers in developing countries.

Research proposals should focus on new or improved product-oriented solutions that would significantly reduce the therapeutic and/or non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in low-and middle income countries (LMICs) in poultry, swine, and/or aquaculture production. These solutions should target the prevention and control of infectious diseases of importance in LMICs and the reduction of the use of antibiotics as growth promoters.

Key criteria

  • The proposed veterinary solution must focus on poultry, swine, or aquaculture animals.
  • The research team must include at least one researcher from an institution based in a low or middle-income country as principle investigator or co-applicant (see FAQs for more details).
  • Applicants from academia, private, and public sector organizations with a strong research focus are eligible for this global call.
