Joakim Larsson contacted us with a request to provide support in developing an application for funding for a Center for Antiobiotic Resistance (CARe). This was prompted by a call by University of Gothenburg for ambitious applications to create interdisciplinary research centers that could tackle major global societal challenges – the university had allocated 300 MSEK for this UGOT Challenges project.
Joakim contacted us with a request to help develop this highly interdisciplinary research proposal that he was writing with colleagues from six different faculties at University of Gothenburg:
- Sahlgrenska Academy
- Faculty of Science
- Faculty of Business, Economics and Law
- Faculty of Arts (and Humanities)
- Faculty of Social Sciences
- Faculty of Education

The proposed research programme to launch the new center CARe – Center for Antibiotic Resistance – was funded as one of only six centers funded by University of Gothenburg, in a competition with almost 100 applications.
