New networks to increase knowledge about antibiotic resistance

Four research networks have been awarded grants to find new solutions and share methods that can slow down the development of antibiotic resistance. The support is a targeted initiative within the National research programme on antibiotic resistance.

At the beginning of November, the Swedish Research Council made a decision in the call for network grant within the infection area: knowledge gaps within antimicrobial resistance. Four networks will receive a total of 600 000 SEK each during two years, to coordinate research questions, share and use data and research infrastructure, and for collaboration and knowledge exchange between healthcare and research. It is a new type of funding instrument, which was initiated under the National research programme on antibiotic resistance.

“The grant creates new opportunities for researchers and clinicians to create national networks that contribute to better treatment of infections by pre-empting and preventing the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance,” says Patriq Fagerstedt, Programme Manager.
