New Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda on Antimicrobial Resistance

The updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) from the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) presents an overview of recent developments and future needs for AMR research. The SRIA outlines six key priority topics within the AMR field: Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Surveillance Transmission, Environment and Interventions, and has defined a set of research objectives within each priority topic. Together, 27 countries has created the SRIA.

The SRIA highlights many important research needs, some of which include:

  • The need to address AMR with a holistic One Health approach.
  • The necessity of including innovation in every aspect of AMR research.
  • Increased inclusion of low- and middle income countries (LMIC´s)
  • The need for developments incorporating personalised medicine and artificial intelligence, and more.

The SRIA is a prime guiding tool for AMR research prioritisation in investments, research activities and planning for JPIAMR member states and other funding initiatives.

The Swedish Research Council hosts the JPIAMR Secretariat in Stockholm, Sweden.
