Full details

e-Bug is a free educational programme operated by Public Health England that teaches children and young people about infection control, hygiene and antibiotics. The e-Bug project was formally established in 2009 by a consortium of 18 European countries, partly funded by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANCO) and 2019 will mark its tenth anniversary. 

Public Health England has organised this two-day meeting to celebrate a decade of e-Bug's achievements and international partners, while showcasing current and emerging trends and technologies in the teaching of antimicrobial resistance, microbiology and infection prevention and control.

The themes of the meeting are:

  • innovating education on antimicrobial resistance and infection prevention 
  • widening e-Bug implementation across Europe and internationally    

The meeting will include talks, interactive workshops and case studies from e-Bug partners and stakeholders on both days. It will also provide a platform for participants to share knowledge, network and demonstrate their work on e-Bug and antimicrobial resistance through oral and poster presentations. The final deadline for submissions is 16:00 on Thursday 25 October 2018.
