EFFORT/LinkTADs Webinar on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Surveillance - 5 February 2015
- Jaap Wagenaar, from Utrecht University (Netherlands) will make a generic presentation about the ecosystems of AMR, its dynamics and transfer at the bacteria level;
- Jeroen Dewulf, from Ghent University (Belgium) will make a presentation about antimicrobial usage surveillance.
- After the two short presentations, you will have the chance to ask and discuss with these two key experts, some of the questions that you are particularly interested in – a unique opportunity!
The webinar will be delivered using an online meeting format (Adobe® Connect™ webinar). Participation will be free of charge. The webinar will run for 1.5 hours (maximum) and it will be recorded.
And do not hesitate to share the invitation with colleagues from your institution (or other institution) that you think would also like, or perhaps be even more suitable, to attend it. Once we have the list of attendees we will send out instructions how to attend. Your participation is highly appreciated.
The event is co-organized by two EU-funded projects:
- EFFORT is a EU-funded project, which will study the complex epidemiology and ecology of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the relation between antimicrobial usage in animals and antimicrobial resistance, and the interactions between bacterial communities, commensals and pathogens in animals, the food chain and the environment (http://www.effort-against-amr.eu/).
- LinkTADs is another EU-funded project, which aims to coordinate research on animal disease control (i.e. epidemiology and laboratory diagnostics) between partners in the EU and China. By fostering networking between scientific institutions, LinkTADs will establish systematic linkages between on-going animal health research, training programmes and innovation projects in the EU and China (www.linktads.com/).
