AMR Transmission Dynamics

Call year 2016




The primary aim of the third joint call of JPIAMR, AMR Transmission Dynamics, is to combine the resources, infrastructures, and research strengths of multiple countries in order to address transmission of antibiotic resistance following a One Health approach.

The goal is to foster multinational research collaborations to add value to and to build upon the research conducted independently at national level and to work together to improve the control of resistant bacterial infections of clinical and/or veterinary importance only. The total funding for this call is over 24 million euro with a 6 million euro European Commission “topping up” fund.

Call Topics

To understand the acquisition, persistence/ retention, and transmission of resistant organisms and resistance genes, research should investigate:

  • Selection of resistance and its transmission between individuals and between human and non-human sources
  • The success of clones, organisms, and resistance patterns and the role of different genetic elements.
  • The fitness of the resistant bacteria in clinical, community, veterinary, and environmental settings.
