Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

Networks awarded funding within the 7th JPIAMR Joint Call

Ten networks have been awarded funding within the JPIAMR 7th transnational call: “2018 Network Call on Surveillance”. Each funded network will receive €50,000 to enhance resource alignment and efforts in the field of AMR surveillance.

The call was launched in May 2018 and supported by ten research-funding organisations from JPIAMR member countries. In this network call JPIAMR is supporting networks of leading experts that are expected to provide white papers, prospective views, guidelines and/or best practice/roadmap/systematic reviews and frameworks to identify key questions to be addressed or identify potential solutions to overcome barriers for AMR surveillance and the implementation of surveillance research studies.

Sixteen applications were received, involving 364 partners from 63 different countries. The evaluation process included international experts that performed remote evaluation and constituted the peer review panel. In total ten transnational networks were granted funding. Please visit the JPIAMR YouTube channel to view short videos with five of the funded networks.
