In total, 12 projects involving 55 partners from 25 different countries have been awarded funding within the JPIAMR ninth transnational call on diagnostics and surveillance. The total funding amount is 12,1 Million Euros.

The call was launched in December 2018 and supported by twenty research-funding organisations from JPIAMR member countries. The primary aim of the call was to support innovative research projects on new or improved diagnostic and surveillance strategies, tools, technologies and methods. The call also aimed to support research projects that have the potential for impact in areas where the risk and burden of AMR is greatest, such as in LMIC settings in Asia and Africa.
