Surveillance networks are essential to monitor the threat of AMR and guide public health policy. The JPIAMR call for networks aims to create networks to enhance resource alignment and efforts in the field of AMR surveillance.

In partnership with ten member countries; Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, JPIAMR is launching the seventh joint call for transnational networks. The total budget of the call is approximately € 1.1 million.

This network call “Working to Improve Surveillance” aims to create networks to enhance resource alignment and efforts in the field of AMR surveillance. Surveillance is a prerequisite for assessing the success of AMR stewardship measures, infection prevention and control, and the effectiveness of new therapeutic and diagnostic options. The overarching goal of JPIAMR research on surveillance is to standardise, improve and extend surveillance systems on antibiotic use and on AMR in humans, animals, food, and the larger environment.

In this network call up to 21 networks will be funded with up to € 50 000 each to maximise existing and future efforts to combat AMR by pushing forward new ideas in AMR surveillance. Note that JPIAMR networks calls do not fund research projects.

Call procedure

The Network Call on Surveillance 2018 has a one-step procedure. The final funding decision will be announced in September / October 2018.

Deadline

The proposal submission deadline is June 12th, 2018, (14.00h CET).
