Industry and research join forces to tackle $283 billion antimicrobial resistance threat to Australia
A new partnership to improve the resilience and profitability of Australia’s food and agribusiness industries has been kickstarted with a $34.5 million Federal Government grant announced today.
The Cooperative Research Centre for Solving Antimicrobial Resistance in Agribusiness, Food, and Environments (CRC SAAFE), involving 70 partners contributing an additional $115 million cash and in-kind support, is led by UniSA environmental scientist Professor Erica Donner.
Over the next decade the $149 million project will tackle resistance to essential antibiotics, antifungals and antivirals that, if not addressed, could wipe up to $283 billion from the Australian economy by 2050.
