This competition opened on 14 September 2016 and is now closed for registrations.
Open to any UK organisation, 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 and services 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
Successful applicants must spend and claim their grant by 31 March 2017.
We expect funding requests to be between £200,000 and £2 million but larger and smaller grants will be considered (see funding section).
The competition project is open to any UK organisation working on its own or in a consortium.
