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

Virtual workshop: AMR surveillance research and its impact on policymaking, 23 February 2021

In the current pandemic context, AMR surveillance research is more necessary than ever. The efforts made in this framework in recent years have resulted in a number of relevant outputs, that need to be properly conveyed to policy makers to be incorporated into national action plans.

Across this workshop, jointly organised by JPIAMR and EU-JAMRAI, we will present some of the latest AMR surveillance research findings, followed by a debate about how these results may inform national policies.

This will be a cutting-edge meeting point for policymakers, researchers and funders. They will have the chance to discuss effective strategies to integrate evidence into policies and improve the implementation of AMR surveillance mechanisms in human health, animal health and environment.

The programme includes high-level representatives of the ECDC, WHO GLASS, IMI COMPARE/VEO, the EU-JAMRAI EARS-Vet project, and JPIAMR Surveillance Research Networks.

Virtual workshop: Feeding the AMR Therapeutics Pipeline, 20-22 April 2021

As AMR emerges, new strategies for the treatment of infection and identification of resistant microbes are crucial. This JPIAMR activity, led by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) with support from Sweden (SRC), South Africa (SAMRC), Korea (NRF), France (ANR), and Canada (CIHR) is delivered as part of JPIAMR’s mission to enable global coordination of research.

The main goals of the workshop are:

  • To showcase therapeutics research and improve links between academia, industry and policy makers in the context of the wider global antimicrobial therapeutics community
  • To identify gaps and opportunities in therapeutics research

The workshop is organised online in three half-day sessions, (13:00-17:00 CET) from the 20th to the 22nd of April 2021, combining keynote presentations, short invited talks selected from abstract submissions, and panel discussions.
