Using the national infrastructures to solve antimicrobial resistance

Virtual Event Virtual Event

June 2 @ 09:00 13:00 CEST

The first InfraLife workshop gathers stakeholders in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) for a joint discussion on June 2nd, 2021. 

The AMR workshop in June will be followed up by activities during Fall to focus and expand initiatives of relevance identified during initial discussions and the first workshop. 

As with other InfraLife initiatives – we invite all interested to reach out and be in touch if you want to hear more and see potential to get involved in activities!

New collaborations advancing science are about gathering cross sectorial experts and stakeholders around a grand challenge, taking a thematic approach and engaging the infrastructures and available technologies in how they can help address the question and be part of the solution to the research challenge at hand. And showing the complementarities of the research infrastructures in this setting.

We plan for other future themes besides AMR, such as lifestyle diseases/ cancer and clean water/ the Baltic Sea, considering life sciences beyond human health including environmental challenges. If you are active in these areas within your organization and see potential for joint efforts, please be in touch. We would love to hear from you and learn about the scientific questions and challenges of particular interest, where you would like to get engaged to jointly explore the potential of the national research infrastructures.
