GRIN (General practice Research on Infections Network, formerly General practice Respiratory Infections Network) is a European network of researchers studying respiratory tract and other infections in primary care.

The 2016 GRIN meeting is hosted by Professor Chris Butler and the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. 

The GRIN meeting is financially supported by the European Science Foundation (ESF), in the framework of the Research Network Programme TRACE (Translation Research on Antimicrobial resistance and Community-acquired infections in Europe). It will be preceded by the 7th TRACE Steering Committee meeting at the same venue. 

If you have a question, please contact Emma Butterfield emma.butterfield@phc.ox.ac.uk

We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford.

GRIN (General practice Research on Infections Network, formerly General practice Respiratory Infections Network) is a European network of researchers studying respiratory tract and other infections in primary care.

The key issues of GRIN are:

  • Exchange ideas and keep informed about current research
  • Compare guidelines on respiratory and other infections
  • Find consensus on the state of the art on different subjects and formulate European guidelines
  • Set up international studies.

The organisation consists of experts in the field from nearly all European countries, from Asia, Australia, and the United States of America. Members have contributed in national and international guidelines and are part of international collaborations in targeting antimicrobial resistance due to inappropriate management of respiratory tract and other infections.

The network:

  • is interested in acute respiratory and other infections regardless of causative organism
  • concentrates on questions that have clear relevance to primary care and an added value from international setting
  • facilitates contacts and collaboration between researchers in different countries for example by arranging workshops and seminars, planning and carrying out joint study projects, disseminating information to support evidence-based practice, using a multiprofessional approach.
