Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

Strategic and Exploratory Workshops

JPIAMR organises workshops to identify future joint actions. By bringing together experts from all relevant fields relating to a specific topic, the workshops can map the landscape and identify knowledge gaps. The added value of JPIAMR is that through its funding mechanisms and collaborative actions, the initiative can set in motion activities to fill these knowledge gaps.

Upcoming workshops

Online workshop: Interventions to Reduce the Development and Transmission of AMR, 3-4 September 2020

The JPIAMR workshop on Interventions to Reduce the Development and Transmission of AMR will be organised online 3-4 September 2020. Two half-day sessions will be dedicated to interactive discussions regarding the results of projects funded by the JPIAMR in 2016 and 2017 – The Call on Transmission Dynamics and the Call on Prevention and Intervention strategies to Control AMR infections and the scope of future calls to address new challenges in One health AMR transmission and interventions. Video presentations of projects funded by JPIAMR on these themes will be uploaded to the workshop webpage a week before the workshop.

Final workshop for JPIAMR Networks, 4-5 November 2020, Edinburgh, UK

The JPIAMR launched two network calls in 2018, (1) Surveillance Networks and (2) Building the Foundation of the JPIAMR-Virtual Research Institute. Within the surveillance call ten networks were funded. Within the JPIAMR-VRI call, eight networks were funded. This workshop aims to discuss outcomes from the funded Networks and explore ways to translate research Network outcomes to have meaningful outputs to the JPIAMR-VRI and strengthen JPIAMR knowledge within the priority topic Surveillance. In addition, the workshop will support communication of network outputs by the JPIAMR.
