Project: Network of European and African Researchers on Antimicrobial Resistance

Acronym NEAR-AMR (Reference Number: JPIAMR_2018_N026)
Duration 01/01/2019 - 30/10/2020
Project Topic The Network of European and African Researchers on Antimicrobial Resistance (NEAR-AMR) represents a group of experts from leading institutions throughout Europe and Africa, within multiple disciplines (clinical, pharmacy, veterinary, environmental microbiology, epidemiology, molecular biology and evolution) encompassing a One Health approach to AMR. The comprehensive geographical spread allows different, country-specific insights into the two focal areas of this network: 1. Determining which common capacity and capability training needs exist for young investigators hoping to establish themselves within any area of AMR research from Europe and Africa. 2. Informing on the preferred profile, and realistic limitations, of global surveillance data sharing platforms, informing expectations on what is possible within a range of existing healthcare infrastructures from multiple geographical settings. Network outputs will be included within a dedicated NEAR-AMR website, and will inform on the strategic direction of the JPIAMR-VRI as it develops. The overall aim of this network is to focus international efforts for maximal benefit and to ensure that results are translatable on continental scales.
