Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance
 

Strategic Research Agenda

“It’s a worldwide concern that antibiotics, which have allowed us to treat previously deadly bacterial infections and save many lives, are now becoming less and less effective. It’s therefore crucial to immediately join forces under one research agenda to achieve a greater global impact,” says Herman Goossens from the Scientific Advisory Board. Within this context, JPIAMR has developed a strategic research agenda (SRA), which is supported by the initiative’s member states and other international players. The Strategic Research Agenda aims to:

  • To bring together all players in the field for a multi-dimensional approach
  • To provide a platform for partners to collaborate in a tailor-made fashion on specific topics
  • To harmonise joint actions and create greater impact
  • To reduce research overlaps
  • To create awareness and knowledge
  • To stand a chance of actually finding a solution to the AMR problem

Actions within six priority topics will be translated into new prevention and intervention strategies to improve public health and deliver economic and societal benefits throughout Europe and beyond.

To tackle antibiotic resistance, the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR), through its strategic research agenda, will pull together international efforts to achieve sustainable future use of antibiotics. This multi-dimensional effort will provide new prevention and intervention strategies to improve public health and wellbeing of populations and deliver economic and societal benefits. SRA_wide More concretely, JPIAMR, through its SRA will anchor the priority topics through:

  • Establishing a biobank of clinical specimens and strains
  • Establishing a database containing information on on-going AMR research (including veterinary and environmental samples)
  • Collaborating with stakeholders
  • Raising awareness of AMR

Putting focus on antibiotic resistance in bacteria that cause life-threatening infection during hospitalisation
