Event Details

Information and Partnering Event: UK - China collaboration to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR) 

The Department of Health - working in collaboration with Innovate UK - is to invest up to £10 million of Official Development Assistance (ODA) funding in bilateral R&D projects between the UK and China which address the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. This is for innovation projects to support the development and, where appropriate, clinical evaluation, of new products or services. These products or services must be of value in addressing the threat from antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) will invest up to 60 million RMB to fund the Chinese partners.

Projects are expected to be equal partnerships between the UK and Chinese members of a consortium. The UK will provide up to £750,000 to the UK side. Funding of up to 5 million RMB will be made available to the Chinese side from MoST.

Projects should last no more than 3 years and your consortium, as a whole, must contain at least:

  • 1 UK-based business of any size or
  • 1 UK academic organisation or research organisation
  • 1 Chinese business of any size (established with corporate capacity within the mainland of People’s Republic of China) 
  • 1 Chinese academic organisation or research organisation (established with corporate capacity within the mainland of People’s Republic of China) 

The competition aims to encourage innovative partnerships between the UK and China. This is to carry out novel projects that neither country would be likely to conduct, within the same timeframe, without the expertise of the other.

The competition is aimed at having an impact on antibacterial resistance, infections in animals as well as humans will be in scope, provided the infection being addressed constitutes a significant threat to human health.  

 The scope of the competition includes projects that will:-

  • Explore opportunities arising from Traditional Chinese Medicine;
  • Develop new drugs and vaccines;
  • Increase the feed energy conversion in livestock without using antibiotics or hormones;
  • Optimise the use and clinical utility of current antibiotics;
  • Improve diagnostic capabilities for diagnosis, treatment selection and surveillance.

The aim of this event is to:

  • Provide information on the competition
  • Share experiences of participating in international bilateral consortiums
  • Support consortium building among potential UK partners.

Agenda coming soon.

**Please note, places for this event are limited and if the meeting is oversubscribed, places will be prioritised for those who have the potential of participating as partners in this competition and to ensure a balanced audience of research organisations and industry**
