The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI) is a virtual platform that aims to increase AMR Research coordination, improve visibility of the AMR research networks, research performing institutes/centres and infrastructures, and facilitate knowledge exchange and capacity development across the globe, covering the full One Health AMR Spectrum.

The JPIAMR-VRI and its Digital Platform supports 3 main goals:


  • Connect people to people: A type of platform that provides the infrastructure to facilitate interactions between a large number of people to bring those with complimentary interests together and fosters networking that results in short and/or long-term relationships.
  • Connect people to data: Enable people to connect with the most appropriate resources to fulfil their AMR information need within the platform.
  • Create mobilization and synergy: Engage organizations and people to reach above their individual capabilities under one common goal. To create a momentum where knowledge and information exchange can take place across different stakeholders, i.e. knowledge generators and knowledge users.

The JPIAMR-VRI will build a virtual “corridor” facilitating alignment of strategies, and the production and sharing of scientific evidence, for developing policy and guidelines to reduce the global burden of AMR.
