FEMS Project: Join our Fighting AMR taskforce

Do you want to make a positive impact on the microbiology community?

Do you want to help connect the global network of microbiologists?

Fighting AMR campaign

New antimicrobial resistance (AMR) mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases and resulting in prolonged illness, disability and death. Many organizations and research teams all over the world are working hard to tackle this global problem.

To connect the scientific community to new developments and resources in AMR, our Fighting AMR campaign aims to bring information from all these different sources together into an easily searchable database on our Opportunities Board. Here, new events, awards, jobs and useful resources in AMR can be easily promoted to the wider scientific community. The aim is to help bring together those that work in the AMR field through networking and new opportunities.

Taskforce details

We are looking for dynamic volunteers to join our team to play a pivotal role in connecting the microbiology community to key global AMR events, funding opportunities, jobs and resources. You will be part of a taskforce responsible for:

  • scouting and assessing major opportunities in AMR
  • translating these opportunities into clear and compelling texts for the Fighting AMR campaign
  • building the Fighting AMR campaign to be useful and valuable to the microbiology network

If you are interested in being a part of the Fighting AMR taskforce, please contact our Project Coordinator, Martijn van Veen, for more information.
