We are excited to invite you to the annual workshop of the AMR DetecTool project. Leading European microbiologists will share their expert insights with participants on topics that will influence how antimicrobial resistance will be diagnosed and treated in the future. Rapid tests will be in the focus of the workshop from various perspectives: relevant previous and current experiences, expected clinical impact, market opportunities and regulation in the EU.

This workshop will be a hybrid event: project partners of the AMR DetecTool project are invited to attend – if the pandemic situation allows – to participate on-site in Barcelona, and we invite the research community and every interested expert to participate online.
Project partners are also invited to participate in the Consortium Meeting before the workshop between 9.00-10.20 on 29 November (also available online).

Register here.
