Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

About JPIAMR

In 2011, the European Commission established the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR), together with 11 European member countries. Today, JPIAMR is a global collaborative platform and has engaged 27 nations to curb antibiotic resistance (AMR) with a One Health approach. The initiative coordinates national funding to support transnational research and activities within the six priority areas of the shared JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda – therapeutics, diagnostics, surveillance, transmission, environment and interventions. To date JPIAMR has supported research and network projects, with funding of approximately 67 million euro. JPIAMR is continuously adding member nations. The JPIAMR is currently developing a platform to extend shared research capabilities on a global scale through the Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI).

The Secretariat of JPIAMR is hosted by the Swedish Research Council in Stockholm, Sweden.
