About PLATINEA

Platform for Innovation of Existing Antibiotics

PLATINEA

PLATINEA is a multisectorial collaboration platform with the aim to preserve and enhance the value of existing antibiotics. PLATINEA is financed by VINNOVA and consists of 15 partners from academia, authorities, industry and healthcare. The platform is divided into five work packages (WP 1-5) which handle various issues in the field of antibiotics. The common goal is to ensure that the antibiotics available today are used in the best way and to ensure accessibility to important antibiotics that risk disappearing from Sweden. Within the platform, continuous inventory and prioritization of antibiotics are made, as well as new studies for adjustment of antibiotic dosing. The project will also evaluate and test new methods to promote rational use of antibiotics as well as investigate the supply chains for existing antibiotics.
