Helen Lambert, ESRC Research Champion, attended
the UK-China joint workshop in Shanghai to discuss the recently announced call for collaborative research on AMR.
UK research councils (ESRC, MRC & BBSRC) together with the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) announced the call for research into antibacterial resistance in China just before Christmas (details below if you missed it). The funds for this call will be channeled through the Newton Fund which aims to promote the economic development and social welfare of partner countries. Applicant teams will need to include partner institutions from both the UK
and China which are eligible for funding from their respective country funding bodies
(ESRC, MRC or BBSRC in the UK or NSFC in China).
