SAFE (Superbug Awareness for Education), is an international project ongoing since January 2020, in the field of antimicrobial resistance. SAFE offers Service-Learning workshops, where we train university students to teach high school students on the topic (training the trainer), encouraging the vocation for STEM careers, through workshops and internships, which will also serve to raise awareness and knowledge of the serious problem of antimicrobial resistance and the importance of the search for antibiotic-producing microorganisms.
Among other actions, the training of university students is carried out to transfer knowledge to high school students, so they can implement research projects on bacterial resistance, and gain scientific communication skills. The participants involved are: University students, undergraduate students (high school ), High school and university teachers, researchers.
RESEARCH AND SCIENTIFIC COMMUNICATION
Through our service learning approach, SAFE will provide knowledge transfer on Antimicrobial Resistance research, as well as other fields such as scientific communication and outreach, crucial to reach the society, and establish an aware community bridging science for the society.
SAFE partners will provide the chance of an internship to those participants with the best communication resources, based on their research results. The internship will be at Roche Diagnostics (ES) and will enrich their vision through the incorporation of an entrepreneurial perspective in the field of antimicrobial resistance.
