JPI AMR pre announcement call

JPIAMR pre-announced a joint transnational research call for proposals for innovative research projects on new or improved diagnostic and surveillance strategies, tools, technologies and methods. The call will support research projects that also have the potential for impact in areas where the risk and burden of AntiMicrobial Resistance (AMR) is greatest, such as in LMIC settings in Asia and Africa. AMR has become one of the major global health and development challenges of the 21st century. The threat of AMR is particularly high in resource-limited and high-risk settings. This is linked to issues such as weak human and animal health systems; diverse means of food production, processing and consumption; food safety and food security; water, hygiene and sanitation challenges; and the global movement of people and goods. The projected call budget is approximately 20 million Euro.
