Who did the Education and Training activities target?
The activities targeted early career researchers, professional researchers and students at different stages of education i.e. from bachelor’s to PhD level.
The calls to host and organise all events were run internally within the One Health EJP consortium.
Once the hosts of the events were selected, events details were announced on our website, advertised on social media, in newsletters and emails that were circulated. This event promotion encouraged researchers to apply to attend one or more of these educational, integrative and collaborative events organised by one of our partner institute locations across Europe!
How did Work Package 6 integrate into the One Health European Joint Programme?
To successfully detect, respond to, and prevent outbreaks of foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and emerging threats, data, methodologies, expertise and laboratory information should be shared across sectors.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has stated that “government officials, researchers and workers across sectors at the local, national, regional and global levels should implement joint responses to health threats”.
In line with this “Prevent-Detect-Respond” concept, the main focus of the One Health EJP (OHEJP) was to reinforce collaboration between institutes by enhancing medical, veterinary and environmental cooperation and integration of activities across the OHEJP European partner network.
The OHEJP funded several Education and Training activities, including the Doctoral Programme, Short Term Missions, Summer Schools, Continuing Professional Development modules and other workshops, for building a sustainable framework in the fields of Foodborne Zoonoses (FBZ), Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Emerging Threats (ET).
Work Package 6 Objectives
The overall objective of Work Package 6 was to develop and deliver innovative training platforms and materials with a specific focus on One Health, and provide a sustainable framework for educational integration of research groups and reference laboratories across the OHEJP partner network.
Through this, the OHEJP has provided the foundation for sustainable integration in the next generation of One Health researchers.
Work Package 6 was responsible for organising the Doctoral Programme, Summer Schools, training workshops, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules, and Short Term Missions for OHEJP partners.
