Tackling drug resistance: UK-China funding competition announced

Innovate UK

Next year will see a collaborative competition launched between the UK and China to develop solutions that address the threat of antimicrobial resistance. Innovate UK is to invest up to £10 million in UK businesses, on behalf of the Department of Health. The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) will invest up to 60 million RMB to fund the Chinese partners.

The aim is to support novel projects that neither country would be able to conduct within the same timeframe without the other’s expertise. These should develop new products or services against antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Where appropriate, they should include clinical evaluation.
