AMR Innovation Mission UK 2021
Virtual mission welcomed > 400 delegates from 64 countries!
Boosting international collaboration and joint innovation to add to the curbing of AMR
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global societal problem that is recognised as needing a rapid global response. At the same time AMR offers business opportunities for those developing innovative solutions. Research and development is becoming more global and collaborative. The AMR Innovation Mission UK aims to boost international collaboration and joint innovation to add to the curbing of AMR.
Boosting the entire value chain
The AMR Innovation Mission UK 2021 aims to add to the global curbing of AMR by boosting joint early & translational research, R&D, clinical development, validation, registration and commercialisation of vaccines, microbial diagnostics and antimicrobial products. It facilitates international dialogues for the UK business community to help them develop their technologies utilising the best science nationally and internationally.
Missions part of a rotating program
The AMR Innovation Missions are part of a rotating program. Each year, a country is selected on which the mission will focus the following year. The design and implementation of the program are coordinated with the national authorities of that country. The country selected for 2022 will be announced in September 2021.
The AMR Innovation Mission UK 2021 is an initiative of AMR Insights and is realised in collaboration with Innovate UK EDGE, Oxford Innovation, Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and NIHR.
