The 7Tth AMR conference is a platform for SMEs, start-ups, big pharma, academia, investors and public institutions to discuss strategies and the specific challenges faced by SMEs in bringing new antimicrobial treatments and diagnostics to the market. The “AMR Conference” was started in 2017 as part of the annual “Berlin Conference on Life Sciences” series which was established by BIOCOM AG twelve years ago as an event format to discuss the challenges of SME-driven innovation for the health market and to offer a platform for meeting experts from business, science, clinics, finance, regulatory affairs and intellectual property. The BEAM Alliance is one of the major supporting partners of the AMR Conference. Launched in June 2015, the BEAM (Biotech companies in Europe combating AntiMicrobial Resistance) Alliance is a strong network of more than 60 small and medium-sized European biotech and diagnostics companies committed to developing innovative products for fending off antibiotic-resistant pathogens. The aim is to establish the AMR Conference as the one-stop-shop in Europe to meet all AMR relevant stakeholders.
