EFFORT International Conference Announcement

EFFORT International Conference- AMR in the Food Chain- from Science to Policy

From 26 to 28 November 2018, the EFFORT project held its International Conference “Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain-From Science to Policy” in Utrecht, the Netherlands.  Nearly 250 participants from 34 countries around the world registered to the EFFORT International Conference.

The conference counted with well-known external speakers from international organizations (i.e. FAO, WHO, OIE and EMA) and prestigious researchers who gave an overview about antimicrobial stewardship in future animal production, current risk management tools and the use of the guidelines for the prudent use of antimicrobials in practice. The EFFORT consortium presented the results of the project giving an outline of its research during the last five years. At the end of the conference, a policy round table which aimed to translate the EFFORT results into policy took place giving place to engaging discussions.
