The SEBA project strengthens the capacity of the partner universities to fight against AMR in Benin and Burkina Faso by providing training to university teachers and students and improving institutional infrastructure to enable high-quality education for future experts in AMR management

To achieve our goals,

1) we train the trainers, ie. the local university teachers in AMR and pedagogic skills

  • two cross-cutting principals are 1) active learning techniques based on modern learning theories; 2) the One Health approach, where the health of people, animals and environment is treated as a single entity that is affected by socio-economic structures

2) we organize an Advanced Training Programme in AMR for the first cohort of students

  • broad and in-depth hands-on training in eg. molecular biology techniques, bioinformatic analysis of sequence data and interaction with stakeholders equip graduates with the skills to fully contribute in global AMR activities using the English language

3) we improve the infrastructure and institutional competence of the participating universities

  • new laboratories and bioinformatics platforms with skilled maintenance and teaching staff will be provided to the leading universities in Benin and Burkina Faso
  • the training will be subject to quality control and accreditation procedures to meet European higher education standards
