We would like to invite you to a conference organized within bilateral initiative shAMRock – shocking antimicrobial resistance. The conference will take place on 12th May 2020 at University of Chemistry and Technology Prague
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are claimed to be hotspots for antimicrobial resistance and can be an important threat to human health. Antimicrobial resistance in WWTPs is even more dangerous as the resistance genes can be transferred from environmental bacteria to pathogens and create an even higher risk for the wellbeing of citizens. Therefore, scope of the conference is monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in wastewater treatment plants - approaches and methods, results and perspectives.
There is no registration fee
The authors cover their own costs (travel, accommodation, etc.) to attend the conference.
Procedure for Submission is described here https://tvp.vscht.cz/research/projects-grants/50582/50844?ecrof&jazyk=en#novinka_detail25803388051713.
Submissions are welcome from 1st March 2020 and must be received before 31st March 2020. The submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed.

Manaia, Ana Catarina Ferreira, Joana Silva, Ivone Vaz-Moreira, Jaqueline Rocha and Adrian Górecki at UCP Porto during short research visit „Developments on the monitoring of the antibiotic resistance and associated genetic elements in environmental samples“. Aleksandra will stay at UCP till the end of April, till that time she is going to optimize protocol for IS26 in activated sludge using qPCR, get familiar with UCP’s research groups and labs, collaborate in great, sunny atmosphere and enjoy Portuguese culture.
On January 21-23, 2020, REPARES Seminar 1" on the DNA isolation took place in Delft, The Netherlands.
The seminar was hosted by David Weissbrodt and Mark Van Loosdrech from the Faculty of Applied Sciences of TU Delft. The practical part was guided by David Calderon and Ben Abbas.
Invited speakers Bruno Bicudo Perez, Ron Dirks, and Thomas Abeel gave an excellent insight on antibiotic resistance in water matrices.
On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, all 5 partners of the newly launched REPARES project have met at the UCT Prague for their Kick-off meeting.
Members from UCT Prague, TU Delft, Aalborg University, Universidade Catolica Portuguesa and Wetsus company have met to discuss their point of view on antibiotic resistance in wastewater and successfully started their new Horizon 2020 Twinning project.
