Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

Projects awarded funding within the 9th JPIAMR Joint Call

Twelve projects have been awarded funding within the JPIAMR 9th transnational call: “Call on Diagnostics and Surveillance 2019”. The total funding amount is 12,1 M€.

The call was launched in December 2018 and supported by 20 research-funding organisations from JPIAMR member countries. The primary aim of the call is to support innovative research projects on new or improved diagnostic and surveillance strategies, tools, technologies and methods. The call also aims to support research projects that have the potential for impact in areas where the risk and burden of AMR is greatest, such as in LMIC settings in Asia and Africa.

34 applications were received, involving 172 partners. The evaluation process included international experts that performed remote evaluation and constituted the peer review panel. In total twelve transnational projects were granted funding from 16 funders involved.
