JPIAMR seeks research projects to develop new targets, compounds and tools

JPIAMR launches its sixth call. EUR 600'000 has been budgeted by NRP 72 for Swiss project partners.

A rising number of antibiotics are becoming ineffective because of increasingly resistant bacteria. At the same time, only very few new antibiotics have seen a market launch in the past decades. The development of new drugs is therefore paramount. The sixth call for the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) is looking for research projects in this area.

The submission deadline for pre-proposals is 7 March 2018 (5 pm).

The 6th JPIAMR call was launched on 11 January 2018 with 16 participating countries. The project teams should comprise three to six partners from different countries. NRP 72 has set aside 600,000 euros for the Swiss partners in these teams. Successful applicants from Switzerland must abide by the basic rules and guidelines of NRP 72.
