Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain - From Science to Policy - 26-28 November 2018, Utrecht, Netherlands

Contributed by: UTRECHT UNIVERSITY

From 2018-11-26 to 2018-11-28, Netherlands

The European EFFORT project is now preparing its international conference titled 'Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain - From Science to Policy'. From 26 to 28 November 2018, several topics will be covered, amongst them: use of metagenomics for AMR surveillance, optimal use of antimicrobials, exposure of humans to AMR micro-organisms through food, and exploring effective AMU interventions and their economic aspects.

The 5-year EU project EFFORT (Ecology from Farm to Fork Of microbial drug Resistance and Transmission), funded by the European Commission, aims at understanding the ecology and epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the food chain.

The project results will inform political decisions and help prioritise risk management options along the food chain.

From 26 to 28 November 2018, the European EFFORT consortium of 20 partners will hold its International Conference 'Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain - From Science to Policy'. During the 2,5 days, the EFFORT consortium will present new scientific evidence and breaking results based on the high-quality data collected in the EFFORT project. They will inform decision-makers, the scientific community and other stakeholders about their findings and the impact on the risk of AMR in the food chain, both in relation to animal health and welfare, as well as food safety and economics.

Policy and science leaders from outside the consortium will be invited as keynote speakers to share their views of EFFORT results as well as their own thoughts and findings.

Major topics will be covered, such as:

The optimal use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals,

The use of metagenomics for AMR surveillance along the food chain,

The exposure of humans to AMR micro-organisms through food,

The effectiveness of AMU interventions and their economic aspects,

The needs for future policy changes to minimise public health risk due to AMR.

Gemeenschappelijke Informatiedienst Onderzoek en Ontwikkelingen (CORDIS)

De Gemeenschappelijke Informatiedienst Onderzoek en Ontwikkelingen (CORDIS) houdt zich bezig informatieverstrekking over Europese onderzoeksactiviteiten in het kader van onderzoek en ontwikkeling en het verspreiden van technische kennis en toepassingen binnen de EU.

CORDIS heeft als doel:

  • deelname aan Europees onderzoek faciliteren en stimuleren
  • het verbeteren van de exploitatie van onderzoeksresultaten in het kader van een competitief Europa (zie ook Zevende Kaderprogramma)
  • de praktische toepassing van technologisch onderzoek door bedrijven stimuleren door de verspreiding van kennis
  • het bevorderen van de verspreiding van technologische kennis om de sociale acceptatie van nieuwe technologie te stimuleren
