The Science Curio session brings together the perspectives from AMR research from India and Switzerland and inspire the next generation scientists and entrepreneurs to take on this challenge and excel in a cross-collaborative manner, with a teaser on funding opportunities. This event is co-created by Swissnex and C‑CAMP, and is in collaboration with NUFFIC NESO and EURAXESS.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is on the rise, in India, in Switzerland, everywhere. Some feel it more, others less, some not at all. But eventually it will affect us all. Addressing this pandemic has become one of the biggest challenges to human and animal health, starting from keeping up with the emerging resistance mechanisms of bacteria, innovation of new antibiotics to AMR stewardship and fully understanding its implications for public health.
To address this challenge it is crucial to work outside of silos and open channels between academia, innovation, practitioners and stewards of good practice.
With this Science Curio session we bring together the perspectives from AMR research and public health from India and Switzerland and inspire the next generation scientists and entrepreneurs to take on this challenge and excel in a collaborative way without borders. This session will also serve as a teaser for an exciting lineup of funding opportunities and international meetings around this topic that Swissnex in India and its partners have in the pipeline.
