Get inspiration from researchers that are drawing on One Health & systems thinking in their work on AMR, and contribute to our discussion on how we can work to integrate complex interdisciplinary understandings in education and research. We also look forward to launching the new unit at SHE called “Building and applying systems thinking to AMR and complex global health challenges”.

Registration

The seminar is open to researchers and students who are involved or interested in interdisciplinary projects on AMR, but requires registration by Monday 22 August, 2022.

About the seminar

From microbiology to medical anthropology, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) can be studied and taught from various angles, but without interdisciplinarity there is a risk of representing only a few snapshots of what is a highly complex challenge. How can we work to integrate complex interdisciplinary understandings in education and research? In what ways can One Health based systems thinking provide insights to issues of sustainability? In this meeting of INFRA, we will discuss some of these questions and get inspiration from researchers that are drawing on such approaches in their work. We also look forward to launching that INFRA now is part of a larger AMR related unit at SHE Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Education.

About INFRA
 

Interdisciplinary Forum for Research on Antimicrobial resistance (INFRA) is a research network at the University of Oslo that aims to advance and strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration and research on AMR. The network has recently become part of SHE Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Education. INFRA is coordinated by a group of researchers at the Institute of Health and Society and SHE, and aims to serve as a meeting point for national and international research activities on AMR across departments and disciplinary boundaries.
