Report about the call statistics of the co-funded call HDHL-INTIMIC

The call statistics of the co-funded call “Interrelation of the Intestinal Microbiome, Diet and Health” in the frame of the ERA-Net Cofund “HDHL-INTIMIC” has been analysed. This call was launched in January 2017, with the aim to support research projects that address important research questions regarding the cause-and-effect relationships between diet, the intestinal microbiome and human health.

Evaluation and indicators
To evaluate the results of the co-funded call, an analysis on the call statistics has been performed using indicators like:

  • number of submitted proposals in the two different evaluation stages (including the number of involved partners, countries and funding agencies)
  • requested and awarded funding
  • gender distribution
  • collaboration with private partners etc.

The results of this analysis will feed into the evaluation of the impact of the co-funded call.

Number of proposals and budget
In total 80 pre-proposals have been submitted during the first stage, of which 66 pre-proposals were formally eligible. After the evaluation, 28 consortia were invited to submit a full proposal of which 11 proposals have been selected for funding. In the 11 awarded projects, a total of 43 research groups from 8 countries and 6 collaborators are involved. The total requested budget of the 11 projects is 9.6 M euro of which 2.2 M euro will be contributed by the EU as top-up funding.

Addressed topics
Six of the awarded projects focus on the role of diet-gut microbiome interactions in cardiometabolic diseases, in particular Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Diseases, Type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome and their risk factors. The other projects focus on a variety of topics like cognitive function, colorectal cancer, maternal immunity and neonatal colonization as well as basic mechanisms of host-microbe interactions.
