The EFFORT (Ecology from Farm to Fork Of microbial drug Resistance and Transmission) project will provide scientific evidence and high quality data that will inform decision makers, the scientific community and other stakeholders about the consequences of anti-microbial resistance (AMR) in the food chain, in relation to animal health and welfare, food safety and economic aspects. Specifically, EFFORT will strive to answer the following fundamental, but complex questions demanded by risk managers:
The answers are expected to support political decisions and to prioritise risk management options along the food chain both on the short and long term horizon. In addition, the results can inspire and guide future research initiatives.
