The JPIAMR Alignment Plan sets the basis to align national and European research policies in the area of AMR during the period 2014-2018.
Alignment of National and European research policies and programmes represents a challenge to JPIAMR but is essential to enable the research priorities outlined in the Strategic Research Agenda to be addressed. It is important that a variety of funders at different levels (regional, national, European and international) are involved in this process and that the relevant countries and Member States are engaged. Alignment could involve a particular research area or specific topic or alignment with other JPI activities.
“Alignment is the strategic approach taken by the Member States to modify their national programmes, priorities or activities as a consequence of the adoption of joint research priorities in the context of Joint Programming with a view to implement changes to improve efficiency of investment in research at the level of Member States and ERA”
