Scope and Partnering Webinar: SBRI: antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in humans
This event will be held through a live Webex webcast and will be recorded.
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced investment in a £10 million research competition to find and develop innovations that will fight deadly antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in humans. The investment – delivered in partnership with Innovate UK – will explore scientific solutions to the AMR challenge, by finding new ways to prevent and control infections and developing new therapies, including new antibiotics.
The £10 million will be made available in research grants funded through a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) and is being delivered by Innovate UK on behalf of DHSC, with the aim of supporting the implementation of the five year UK AMR strategy. The SBRI is a well-established scheme which connects public sector challenges with innovative ideas from industry, supporting companies to generate economic growth and enabling improvement in achieving government objectives. Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are encouraged to apply.
