Project: inCreasing cOmmunicatioN, awareNEss and data sharing in a global approaCh against resisTance

Acronym CONNECT (Reference Number: JPIAMR_2018_N023)
Duration 01/02/2019 - 30/06/2020
Project Topic The CONNECT network is based on the need for defining and implementing an integrated research strategy to facilitate the necessary studies and investigations for an innovative response to AMR. The CONNECT network output will contribute to the development of the JPIAMR-VRI by aligning stakeholders to share values on AMR with a One Health approach. The CONNECT network will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to consolidate around a common sets of goals, share their lesson learned and identify synergic work and effectively contribute to the collective impact of research. Recognising the complexity and scale of AMR is emphasised by the amount of resources needed to address the issue, and the limits of available resources and organisational capacities of governments, civil society, and philanthropy/charities. Through partnerships, resources across sectors have the potential to complement one another and create more effective and sustained change. To have increased meaningful and sustainable impact, community engagement is needed. To develop trust, institutions and communities in the network should be involved in design and implementation of research. Developing member interoperability is expected to contribute to a strong and coherent globally connected effort based on exchange data, information, services and/or outputs, align their activities, policies and procedures and effectively operate together. As an ultimate goal, the platform will encourage the development of priorities on strategic focuses, the engagement of brains thinking out of the box innovative solutions, and will represent the virtual and unique point for governing the research in Europe on the fight against AMR on a One Health approach.
