Advancing vaccine development for African swine fever
Within the Horizon Europe Framework Programme, a funding opportunity is open to support research and innovation in reducing the burden of African swine fever (ASF), and thus contributing to a safeguarding animal health and the economic resilience of the sustainable livestock industry.
Activities under this topic will contribute to the following expected outcomes:
- Improved capacity to develop ASF pilot vaccines and their companion DIVA tests for the possible prevention and/or eradication of the disease in domestic pigs and wild boars;
- Vaccination strategies for both wild boar and domestic pigs, addressing different objectives and needs (e.g. eradication in wild boar; emergency or preventive use in domestic pigs).
- Increased international cooperation on a possible ASF vaccine.
Proposals should ensure adequate involvement of stakeholders from the European Medicines Agency, veterinary authorities, farmers and hunters. Involvement of the pharmaceutical industry is highly recommended.
