AMR DetecTool workshop

29-30 November 2021

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: we invite the AMR DetecTool project partners as well as the research community and every interested expert to participate – if the pandemic situation allows – face-to-face, while the event will be also available online. 

Both the in-person and the online participation at this event is free of charge.

Project partners are also invited to participate in the Consortium Meeting before the workshop between 9.00-10.30 on 29 November. (Available for in-person as well as for online participants.)
