JPIAMR is setting a Virtual Research Institute (VRI) as a dynamic network of AMR research facilities that will be changing the way resources are shared and used.

The VRI will constitute a platform for scientific interactions to bring everyone together and push the research priorities forward. It will provide a closer and continuous dialogue between the JPIAMR, the scientific community, industry, funders and the end users, for tackling specific large topics that require a wide collaboration.

It will work as a joint transnational research capacity builder in the AMR space as it will become an attractive hub for increased funding, as well as building the knowledge and expertise in the area.

Amongst many outcomes, the VRI will be providing information on research input and output, and will facilitate the use of infrastructure by developing an entry-point database. The VRI will provide opportunities to the research communities to participate in a number of capacity building activities and will involve multiple research facilities globally for maximum impact.

The VRI will also encompass the SRA priorities and will take a One Health approach.
