Polish researchers awarded funding within the JPI AMR call for proposals on antimicrobial resistance
We are pleased to announce that two projects involving Polish researchers have been awarded funding in the JPI AMR call for proposals 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 granted to 10 research teams.
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, including INART involving dr hab. Magdalena Popowska from the University of Warsaw and ImpresU involving dr hab. Maciej Godycki-Ćwirko from Medical University of Lodz.
