Interdisciplinary Research and AMR Workshop - March 2017
28 March 2017
At the beginning of March over 80 delegates from all across the UK and beyond converged on Bristol for a lively and stimulating workshop on Interdisciplinary Research and AMR. The two-day event was held at Engineers’ House in Clifton and included representatives from 36 different universities and organisations working across Social Science, Health Science, Biomedical Science and Science. The first day was held in the impressive Merchants’ Hall. A series of talks described how existing project teams have navigated working across disciplines on AMR, with hints and tips for the audience. This was followed by a drinks reception and dinner which allowed everyone to get to know each other.
Day 2 consisted of workshop sessions where delegates could discuss the pitches that had been proposed. 34 pitches on prospective research ideas and projects were received before the workshop and these were grouped into 9 different themes ranging from ‘Built environment and behaviour in health care settings’ to ‘Farming, food supply and regulation’ and ‘Professional practice and AMR’. Lively discussions ensued with many groups working up ideas that they hope can lead to funded projects in the future. The workshop was concluded with a session by representatives from RCUK who set out the upcoming funding opportunities and also some suggestions on how to get new projects funded.
All the slides from the various presentations across the two days are available to view on the Resources section of the AMR Champion website.
