In the current pandemic context, AMR surveillance research is more necessary than ever. The efforts made in this framework in recent years have resulted in a number of relevant outputs, that need to be properly conveyed to policy makers to be incorporated into national action plans.

Across this workshop, jointly organised by JPIAMR and EU-JAMRAI, we will present some of the latest AMR surveillance research findings, followed by a debate about how these results may inform national policies.

This will be a cutting-edge meeting point for policymakers, researchers and funders. They will have the chance to discuss effective strategies to integrate evidence into policies and improve the implementation of AMR surveillance mechanisms in human health, animal health and environment.

The programme includes high-level representatives of the ECDC, WHO GLASS, IMI COMPARE/VEO, the EU-JAMRAI EARS-Vet project, and JPIAMR Surveillance Research Networks.

Why should you attend?

  • To discuss strategies for sharing and accessing evidence to inform policymaking related to AMR surveillance.

  • To learn about how the latest research findings are implemented in a AMR surveillance One Health context.

  • To take part on an open dialogue to discuss challenges and implications for AMR surveillance policymaking and research.

  • To listen to top experts in their fields from a One Health perspective.]
