The event was a huge success and bought together 296 delegates, showcasing a wide variety of One Health research with over 80 research posters and over 60 oral presentations. The quality of One Health research presented was exceptional from all researchers and PhD students. We are proud to have facilitated collaboration across the EU and the creation of a One Health Community!
This event was jointly organised by Teagasc and NUI Galway, our Irish partner institutes. This conference offered an ideal platform for presenting research and initiate collaborations between partners. It also provided the Communications Team with an opportunity to meet with consortium members, share lots of One Health EJP merchandise and offer communication and website support.
In addition to an exceptional scientific programme, the social events provided the perfect platform to catch up with colleagues, friends and collaborators, all while taking in Dublin’s Trinity College and all of its history, eating great food at the Teagasc BBQ and learning to dance at the Round Room at the Mansion House at the Gala Dinner.
Our Keynote speakers provided captivating and inspiring talks and in particular we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Lord Jim O’Neill, Stef Bronzwaer from EFSA, Dr. Karin Johansson from ECDC, Professor Martin Cormican from NUIG and Dr. Arie Havelaar from the University of Florida for contributing to the Annual Scientific Meeting.
