2021 Event Highlights

Summer Edition – AMR Briefing Sessions

With around 30 international experts in the line-up, the virtual conference discussed the current state of the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR) during three Briefing sessions, which took place from 24 to 26 August under the umbrella of the 5th AMR Conference – Summer Edition.

Almost 500 registered participants took part in the event to follow discussions about pandemic preparedness, the COVID-19 impact on AMR R&D, the financing climate and policy incentives.

Overall, most of the stakeholders emphasised that there is a momentum of optimism. “The level of investment is rising, interest in the field has improved and the overall trend is quite good.  Particularly vaccines have found investments”, said Aleks Engel from Novo Holdings REPAIR Impact Fund. Overall, Engel also underlined that there is a lot of innovation taking place in the AMR field: “When we started our fund three years ago, we were embarrassed to see how many innovative companies there are, many more than we could invest in with our fund.” In the meantime, many of them have developed further.
