Antimicrobial resistance in the real world

Leave a comment

On 11 September 2015 at the Thistle Marble Arch Hotel, London, W1H 7EH, NERC, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) will launch a new funding opportunity on Antimicrobial Resistance in the Real World.

This cross-council programme is worth up to £6·5m. The scope of the call will cover outdoor environments and host microbiomes.

The programme will support two types of awards: research grants (up to £1-5m at 100 per cent fEC for up to four years) and smaller pump priming grants (£150-200k for 12-36 months).

The research grants have a closing date of 6 October 2015; the pump priming grants, 3 December 2015.

The AMR in the Real World town meeting will be a one day meeting with its principal aim being to disseminate information about the scope and requirements of the call, and provide an opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas, discuss potential projects and identify collaborators. During the event there will be the opportunity to discuss more specific queries with the funders.

The town meeting is intended primarily for prospective applicants to the programme, but will also be beneficial for potential collaborators and those interested in the programme from the perspective of future engagement.
