In the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) field, we currently lack a comprehensive overview with accurate information about available resources and services, where to find them, how they compare to one another, and ways to assess their fitness for reuse in new research. To close this gap, the international consortia JPIAMR and VALUE-Dx bundled their strengths and set out a survey with the ultimate aim to get an overview of existing resources and services that are relevant for AMR research and development. The overview could become a central source of information, ready to take up information on future resources and services as well.
This public report describes the steps taken to set up this survey, presents the results, and the future steps that will be taken. With the survey presented in this report, information was collected on a highly aggregated level. It is an important first step in creating a dynamic overview of AMR-related resources and services. The AMR community will benefit from this initiative, as it will expand options for innovative research and development and may result in new strategies to tackle the global challenge of AMR.

The results are also presented in an interactive dashboard that can be used by the entire AMR research community. Make sure to check it out!
Another survey will be set out to collect more detailed information about individual resources and services, and to address issues related to their findability, reuse, sustainability, and quality. For the next survey we strive to use a machine-readable metadata scheme, ensuring that the input is documented according to a standardised & community-agreed description, is interoperable, and remains up-to-date!
This is an initiative by ZonMw (the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development) on behalf of the consortia JPIAMR and VALUE-Dx.
