The eleven 'Bridging The Gaps' Universities

In 2014, as part of the cross-council initiative in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) EPSRC  launched its 'Bridging The Gap' call to engage engineering and physical sciences (EPS) researchers with the AMR challenge and  develop networks focusing on four multidisciplinary themes in the cross-council AMR initiative ( in order to support people to build capacity and understanding which could lead to future research proposals.
