Calls for proposals

The Global Health EDCTP3 JU invests in global health through funding collaborative research and innovation projects tackling infectious diseases and supporting activities for research capacity building in Africa.  

All calls for proposals are published on the European Commission’s Funding and Tender opportunities portal.

Further information on the calls for proposals can be found in the dedicated annual Work Programmes.

To provide further guidance to interested parties on Work Programme 2024 and its calls for proposals, several information sessions have taken place and a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document has been developed.
