Antibiotic resistance has become a major global public health concern. This workshop is intended to promote knowledge and idea exchange on the occurrence, detection, fate, effects, and risk of antibiotic resistant organisms (ARO) in water ecosystems. A suite of international experts have been assimilated to present their own knowledge and experience regarding ARO management, including ongoing work in the Irish context. The event will bring together the international TRACE Water JPI team and other invited experts.

The workshop will increase awareness of the detection and risk management issues surrounding ARO and will disseminate current understanding regarding environment–health interactions, with a focus on ARO detection, fate and risks. The event will lead to greater awareness regarding ongoing activities internationally in the field and will prompt collaboration and further capacity development. This is a free workshop event, however pre-registration is required.
