The INART main objectives:
Identify intervention strategies to reduce or remove the transfer of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) priority pathogens and AMR plasmids at the start of the food chain. Understand how manure treatments change the plasmid mediated resistome in the manure, on the plants and in the soil after manure application. Identify the microbiome changes in plants and soil amended with manure and how manure treatment can mitigate the transfer of AMR pathogenic bacteria at the start of the food chain.
The INART project is implemented as part of the international program JPI-EC-AMR “Comparison of prevention, control and intervention strategies for AMR infections through multidisciplinary studies, including One Health approaches” . The call for proposal: Comparison of prevention, control, and intervention strategies for AMR infections through multidisciplinary studies, including One Health approaches. JPI-EC-AMR is a programme implemented by JPI AMR (Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance), an initiative which strives to support research on antimicrobial resistance.
