NERC, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), under the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) cross-council initiative, invited attendance at a town meeting to launch a new funding opportunity on Friday 11 September 2015.

NERC, BBSRC and MRC are allocating up to £6·5m for a programme on AMR in the Real World, with case-by-case funding from AHRC. The scope of this call will cover outdoor environments and host microbiomes. This programme will support two types of awards: research grants (up to £1·5m at 100% full economic cost for up to four years) and smaller pump priming grants (£150-200k for 12-36 months).

Further information on the AMR in the Real World call for research grants was available in the research grant outline Announcement of Opportunity (AO).

Information on the AMR in the Real World programme is available and more general information about the AMR cross-council initiative from the MRC website - external link.

The AMR in the Real World town meeting was a one day meeting with its principal aim being to disseminate information about the scope and requirements of the call, and provide an opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas, discuss potential projects and identify collaborators. During the event there was the opportunity to discuss more specific queries with the funders.

The town meeting was run over one day from 10:00-16:45.
