AMR Networks/Working groups

The call AMR Networks/Working groups sets out to assemble motivated groups of leading experts and establish Working Groups in order to enhance resource alignment and maximise existing and future efforts to combat AMR by pushing forward the conceptualisation of ideas.

The Working Groups will for example produce white papers, prospective views, guidelines, and/or best practice frameworks to identify key questions to be address or identify potential solutions to overcome barriers to antimicrobial resistance research studies.

Based on the priority topics identified in the JPIAMR Strategic Research Agenda, applicants are invited to tackle one or more of the suggested focal areas. Examples of questions within the areas are provided as a guide; however, those examples are neither mandatory nor limiting. Working Groups should be built with emphasise on what is needed at a National and International level to address AMR.

Suggested focal areas

  • Guidelines on use (Human & Veterinary) – Affordable stewardship
  • Surveillance in primary care
  • New anti-infective/ New adjuvant therapies / Alternative approaches
  • Evaluation of risk for generation of resistance in human setting
  • Rapid diagnostic tests
  • Role of environmental factors
  • Infrastructures/Biobanks available relevant to infection and AMR
