Integration in the future One Health AMR Partnership

Live webinar 10 January 2023, 10.00-12.00 CET

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) can only be tackled in a multidisciplinary manner, and there is a clear need to integrate the full spectrum of social science and humanities (SSH) disciplines, including economics, political science, ethics, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and law. Some relevant questions are: How do regulatory and economic frameworks influence antimicrobial development, production, availability, and use? How do the public, healthcare professionals, and patients understand, value, and use antimicrobials?

In response to the urgent need for a better understanding and support the development of novel solutions to tackle AMR, a joint research programme, the One Health AMR partnership within the framework of Horizon Europe is expected to be launched in 2025.

This webinar will provide an overview of the OH AMR partnership and how social sciences and humanities are integrated with the research and innovation objectives. We will also share examples of how social sciences have contributed to projects funded previously by JPIAMR.

This webinar aims to inform about the integration of social sciences into the future OH AMR partnership and to encourage social scientists to provide input on the Research and Innovation Objectives by participating in the ongoing open consultation by replying to the survey. The webinar is supported by the Horizon Europe CSA “DESIGN OH AMR”.
