The conference "Hepatitis B, C and E: from basic science to clinical practice" will take place in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland, October 7th to October 11th, 2012

30 May 2012

The Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) and the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), have the privilege to announce the 8th Conference on New Frontiers in Microbiology and Infection. The 2012 edition is entitled: "Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis E: from basic science to clinical practice" and, similarly to the preceding conferences, will be held in Villars-sur-Ollon, a nice and peaceful resort in the Swiss mountains.

The annual Conferences New Frontiers in Microbiology and Infection are intended to be outstanding events in the field of microbiology and to meet the following objectives:
- Focussing on state-of-the-art understanding of the biology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, treatment, and vaccine development of infectious organisms, and their impact on clinical practice.
- Transferring knowledge and initiate a stimulating dialog between basic and clinical microbiologists as well as infectious disease specialists.
- Giving young scientists the opportunity to discuss their work with leading experts in this field.

Appeal to the Swiss Federal Council for an innovative financing model for the research on new antimicrobials
26 November 2017

On 9 November 2017, the Round Table on Antibiotics launched an appeal to the Federal Council to establish a dialogue in Switzerland between all partners involved in antibiotic research (academic research, economics, small and medium-sized enterprises, pharmaceutical industry, etc.). This dialogue should aim at defining, developing and implementing an innovative financing model for the research, development and marketing of new antibiotics that are financially accessible to all.

The World Antibiotic Awareness Week will be held on 13-19 November 2017. Switzerland will participate.
8 November 2017

With the purpose of raising awareness of antibiotic resistance and improving the prudent use of antimicrobials, WHO (World Health Organisation) is organising a World Antibiotic Awareness Week since 2015. This year the event will be held from November 13 to 19. For the first time, Switzerland will actively participate to this week. Indeed, the crisis of bacterial resistance to antibiotics is such that an increasing number of infections is becoming difficult to treat, or even impossible. WHO is deeply concerned with this issue and is stimulating its state members to organise campaigns at the national level. Switzerland has already reacted to the antibiotic resistance issue by promoting a National Research Programme of 20 millions CHF(NRP 72) as well as a national Strategy on antibiotic resistance (StAR).
