Register now for £4m Antimicrobial Resistance Competition Briefing on 19 Sept

UK organisations can apply for a share of up to £4 million capital investment that will enable research into antimicrobial resistance and advance the development of new products and services.


About the funding

Innovate UK are delivering a competition on behalf of the Department of Health to invest up to £4 million to support the UK’s capability to conduct research into antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The aim will be to develop new products and services that will reduce the impact of drug resistant pathogens, slow down the emergence of new ones, and produce new products including drugs, vaccines and diagnostics.

Focusing on antibacterial resistance, the competition aims to:

  • strengthen research and innovation excellence across the UK
  • maximise private sector engagement and leverage funding
  • capitalise on existing UK expertise in AMR research and innovation
  • support and use capability in different regions

Projects are expected to range in size from total costs of £200,000 to £2 million.

The competition is open to any UK organisation working on its own or in a consortium.
