The Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform
The Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP) facilitates the collaboration between public and private organisations, to enhance the development of new antibiotics and alternative therapies for infectious diseases in humans and animals.
NADP will identify relevant research groups, institutes and companies involved in chemical, biological, and/or biomedical antibiotic research to forge collaborations through targeted connections and will organise regular meetings with interested parties. At a later stage, the NADP will provide Drug Discovery Management support/vouchers and Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Office support.
