JPIAMR will develop scientific proposals which will lead to sustainable use of antibiotics to treat infectious diseases and to a decrease in the number of patients with resistant infections in Europé. To do so the project will create a collaborative European research area where the best Resources and capabilities are coordinated.

Aims

  • JPIAMR will develop scientific proposals which will lead to sustainable use of antibiotics to treat infectious diseases and to a decrease in the number of patients with resistant infections in Europe.
  • It aims to integrate relevant scientific fields across national borders and to create a common Strategic Research Agenda with a shared common vision where the best resources and capabilities are coordinated.
  • JPIAMR provides the forum and platform for initiating and coordinating joint actions jointly with Stakeholders beyond issuing joint calls.

Objectives

  • Find routes for novel antibiotics and new anti-infectious strategies
  • Scientifically validate means to increase the number of patients treated early with the appropriate antimicrobial.
  • Provide scientific evidence on ways to reduce the spread of resistant strains.
  • Provide scientific evidence on strategies to reduce the number of patients with resistant or MDR strains, at any level of antibiotic consumption.
  • Reduce the consumption of antibiotics.
