Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

Projects awarded funding within the 5th JPIAMR Joint Call

We are pleased to announce the results of the JPIAMR 2017 call for transnational research projects “Comparison of prevention, control and intervention strategies for AMR infections through multidisciplinary studies, including One Health approaches”. Within this funding opportunity over EUR 11.5 million have been awarded to 10 projects.

The call was launched in January 2017 by 16 research funding organisations from 15 countries, and attracted 53 research groups applying for nearly EUR 57 million in total. As a result 10 transnational consortia were granted funding for projects lasting a max. of 3 years. The final funding decision will depend on national regulations and inspection of the formal proposals to be submitted to the national funding organisations. Each national funding agency will then take a formal decision on the projects to be supported.

The projects awarded funding within the call are:
