Interventions to reduce antibiotic resistance or transmission

Apply for funding to develop or test interventions to reduce the transmission of antibiotic resistance.

You must apply as part of a transnational consortium of three to seven partners.

Your project must aim to either:

  • understand the impact of interventions
  • design, test or compare new interventions.

It must focus on at least two One Health areas:

  • human health
  • animal health
  • environmental health.

Funding is available for three years. UKRI will support between five and seven projects.

The UK part of the project must be within MRC’s, BBSRC’s or NERC’s remit.

This opportunity is available through the Joint Programme Initiative for Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR). MRC, BBSRC and NERC are three of the 30 organisations offering funding through the initiative.
