First call for projects of the Antibiotic resistance programme

At the initiative of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and the General Secretariat for Investment, the French Priority research programme (Programme prioritaire de recherche, PPR) on antibiotic resistance was launched in January 2020 and is coordinated by Inserm.

By deploying multidisciplinary research initiatives that take a One Health approach, this programme aims to prevent infections caused by resistant bacteria, control the transmission and spread of resistance, and propose measures for the appropriate use of antibiotics and their alternatives in order to reduce the costs of bacterial infections and antibiotics consumption in human and veterinary medicine.
