Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

Results JPIAMR Network Plus call 2020

Seven networks including 146 partners from 35 countries have been recommended for funding within the JPIAMR 10th transnational call: “JPIAMR Network Plus 2020”. The total funding amount is approx. 737.000 €.

The call was launched in February 2020 and supported by research-funding organisations from eight JPIAMR member countries.

The intent of the call was to support networks to design and implement ways to support AMR research considering at least one of the six strategic areas of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA): Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Surveillance, Transmission, Environment and Interventions. Networks should develop and implement activities focusing on AMR within the domains of Human health, Animal health and the Environment. The Networks were encouraged to bridge multiple One Health areas as needed and to consider the incorporation of their activities within the JPIAMR-Virtual Research Institute (JPIAMR-VRI).
