Cambridge Global Challenges


Development of tools and solutions to tackle the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in the environment that may pose a significant threat to human health.

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in the UK and the Ministry of Health in Argentina to promote cooperation in antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), on behalf of the DHSC, and the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET) in Argentina are consequently pleased to pre-announce a joint call for collaborative research proposals focussing on AMR in the environment, opening in October 2018.

BBSRC and NERC have been allocated up to £5 million of UK Aid to commit to this call with a matched research contribution funded by CONICET.
