Antimicrobial resistance is a global crisis that threatens public health and modern medicine. The discovery and development of novel antibiotic products are critical components in combating it. Many international, European Union and national initiatives address the scientific, regulatory and economic barriers to antibiotic innovation. This study identifies, reviews and critically assesses these initiatives, and provides policy recommendations for improving the global and European agendas for research and development of antibiotics.
