Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance


Estonia (observer)

Estonia is represented in the JPIAMR Management Board as an observer since March 2014 by the Ministry of Social Affairs. The Ministry of Social Affairs is responsible for the social, health and employment domains in Estonia. This responsibility includes funding the relevant applied research in these areas.

AMR related research in Estonia has so far been mostly funded through the Estonian Research Council grants and the national research and development programmes. In the ongoing strategic research funding period (2014-2020) the national research programmes are currently in the process of being compiled and implemented in cooperation between the Estonian Research Council and the ministries responsible for the specific field of research (e.g. JPIAMR topics are relevant to the Ministry of Social Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of the Environment).

Ministry of Social Affairs also represents Estonia as an observer in JPIHDHL.
