Public Report: Antimicrobial Resistance Survey

Oct. 6, 2020

A rapport is now available on the survey about collections of biological material, databases and services relevant for AMR research that was performed earlier this year by ZonMw, on behalf of JPIAMR and VALUE-Dx.

ZonMw (the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development) performed, on behalf of JPIAMR and the recently started consortium VALUE-Dx, a survey on resources (collections of biological material and databases) that are relevant for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research. In parallel information was collected about services that are provided by research infrastructures and some biobanks.

It is with pleasure that we now share the public report on the survey set out to create an overview of resources and services related to antimicrobial resistance research. Read report. 

The results are also presented in a series of dashboard that can be used by the entire AMR research community. Read more.

Another survey will be set out to collect more detailed information about individual resources and services, and to address issues related to their findability, reuse, sustainability, and quality. For the next survey we strive to use a machine-readable metadata scheme, ensuring that the input is documented according to a standardised & community-agreed description, is interoperable, and remains up-to-date!
