In 2021, the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) will launch another five-year ERA-Net programme called JPIAMR-ACTION. The programme will be supported by the European Commission and the Polish research teams participating in the research projects will be cofunded by National Science Centre. The first call for proposals, will target projects in the area of AMR transmission and interventions. In order to refine the scope of this action, JPIAMR in collaboration with the French National Research Agency (ANR) is organising an online workshop specifically focused on this research area.
The main goals of the workshop, to take place on 3-4 September, 2020 are:
- to identify the recent progress in the research area of AMR transmission, with a specific focus on the results obtained by the projects funded by JPIAMR in 2016 and 2017 – The Call on Transmission Dynamics and the Call on Prevention and Intervention strategies to Control AMR infections.
- to identify the gaps and needs and the future challenges in the research area of AMR transmission.
The workshop will be organised in two half-day sessions entirely dedicated to scientific discussions and debates. Videos presenting the results obtained by the projects funded by JPIAMR will be available shortly before the workshop. These will include three projects involving Polish research teams:
EMerGE-NeT: Effectiveness of infection control against intra- and inter-hospital transmission of MultidruG-resistant Enterobacteriaceae – insights from a multi-level mathematical NeTwork model
ImpresU: Improving rational prescribing for urinary tract infections (UTI) in frail elderly
INART: Intervention of antimicrobial resistance transfer into the food chain
