BactiVac and AMR Insights to join forces
The BactiVac Bacterial Vaccinology Network (UK) and AMR Insights (The Netherlands) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen their relationship. The parties recognise their complementary interests and strengths in the field of infectious disease, antimicrobial resistance R&D and curbing the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in general.
BactiVac and AMR Insights intend to work together for their mutual benefit by facilitating global exchange of information and publications, promoting opportunities available through either party, such as training and events and by inviting each other to contribute to relevant conferences. The parties recognize that cooperation is a necessary condition for success in the global fight against AMR. Vaccination of humans and animals plays a prominent role in this effort.
