The JPIAMR is launching the tenth call for transnational networks in partnership with eight member countries; Canada, France, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden.

The objective of the call “JPIAMR Network Plus 2020” is to support networks to design and implement ways to support AMR research considering at least one of the six strategic areas of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda: Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Surveillance, Transmission, Environment, and Interventions. As described in the JPIAMR Roadmap of actions, those ideas could include any of the following:

  • Connect AMR researchers bridging geographic and research fields
  • Facilitate access to scientific information and infrastructures
  • Provide avenues for sharing of AMR knowledge, data, infrastructures and facilities, and perform meta-studies 
  • Build capacity around AMR Research
  • Increase awareness and visibility of the issue of AMR
  • Use scientific evidence and increase scientific excellence in innovation to inform policy and guideline makers
  • Develop social and economic approaches for the study of interventions, transmission, environment and translation to the market
  • Improve optimal health economic models related to AMR challenge

Networks should develop and implement activities focusing on AMR within the domains of Human Health, Animal Health, and the Environment. The Networks are encouraged to bridge multiple One Health areas as needed. Networks may build upon new or existing global collaborations/partnerships.

For more information, consult The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) website.
