The Joint Programming Initiative on antimicrobial resistance (JPIAMR) was established in 2011 to enable the participating EU Member States and other countries supporting this initiative to work together to address the rise in antibiotic resistance that threatens human and animal health. Throughout the past four years, the JPIAMR has proven to be an important tool for the establishment of a European Research Area in this field. The JPIAMR launched its strategic research agenda (SRA) in 2014. The JPIAMR is currently implementing this SRA via alignment of national activities and launching transnational research calls.
An immediate challenge for the JPIAMR is to move towards a global initiative. In this context, the JPIAMR should capitalize on the current momentum to take the necessary steps for securing its sustainability by Member States, to extend globally and mobilize the EU Members States which are not yet participating in the JPIAMR. A sustainable structure should allow the JPIAMR to progressively move from coordination to integration of national research activities, to further develop its visibility at global level, and to facilitate greater innovation to address AMR.Scope:
Proposals should support the development and extension of the JPIAMR capacities. In particular, resources should be used to:
The proposal should not duplicate work already covered under the ERA-NET (HCO 11 – 2015). The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1 and 2 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.Expected Impact:
