MATRIX Webinar Series 2022 is now underway – 1st June 2022.

The MATRIX Webinar Series 2022 on “Solutions for One Health Surveillance in Europe” is now underway, with webinars scheduled from May to November. Join the next webinar on 8th June presenting the Food Safety Knowledge Exchange (FSKX) Format.

These webinars aim to present the solutions that the Joint Integrative Project MATRIX is developing to support and advance the implementation of One Health Surveillance in European countries. The webinar series is organised by Statens Serum Institut (SSI), leading partner institute of the MATRIX project, and each webinar is free of charge to attend.

One Health Surveillance describes the systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of data and sharing of information collection on humans, animals, and the environment to inform decisions for more effective health interventions. Strengthening the networking opportunities among animal health, public health, food safety and environmental sectors are essential to achieve success in advancing One Health Surveillance.

This webinar series offers an exciting training activity to deliver the latest information on using and implementing OHEJP MATRIX solutions to surveillance officers, researchers and managers from European institutes working in this field. The webinars are designed to encourage participants to share their own experiences and needs associated with one Health Surveillance, which will directly influence the ongoing refinement of solutions shared by MATRIX. The online training experience intends to provide a collaborative platform to stimulate cross-sector discussions among professionals.

The first webinar held on 19th May presented the OH-EPICAP tool, an interactive tool to evaluate the capacities and capabilities for One Health Surveillance of a specific sector and/or pathogen of choice. It also allows the benchmarking of surveillance capacities and capabilities to be compared. The uses and applications of this tool were discussed by researchers from the Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES), France, the University of Surrey, United Kingdom and Statens Serum Institut (SSI), Denmark.
