NERC, on behalf of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, India, are pleased to pre-announce a joint call for collaborative research proposals focusing on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the environment from antimicrobial manufacturing waste.

NERC is now inviting expressions of interest from UK researchers to attend a partnership workshop to provide opportunities for face-to-face networking and develop new collaborations.

The workshop will be held in New Delhi, India on 15-17 May 2019 (the details of the venue will be circulated in due course). The aims of the partnership workshop will be:

  1. To understand the key challenges around AMR in the environment and antimicrobial manufacturing waste, and the relevant research landscapes in the UK and India.

  2. For the funders to present an overview of the call aims and objectives and for participants to discuss and understand the scope.

  3. To facilitate partnerships between the relevant UK and Indian research and innovation communities, and for researchers and industry representatives to network and begin to develop ideas to address the aims of the call.

It is expected that approximately 20 UK participants will be invited to attend and UKRI will try to ensure a balance of different disciplines / expertise and the number of attendees from the same institution.

Further information about the call can be found in the Announcement of Opportunity document below.
