How does Work Package 6 fit 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 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) is to reinforce collaboration between institutes by enhancing medical, veterinary and environmental cooperation and integration of activities across the OHEJP European partner network.
In addition to funding Joint Research Projects and Joint Integrative Projects, the OHEJP is also funding several Education and Training activities to build 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 is 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 aims to encourage the foundation for sustainable integration in the next generation of One Health researchers.
Work Package 6 is responsible for organising the submission, selection and evaluation of PhD proposals, summer schools, training workshops, continuing professional development events, and finally administering short term missions for OHEJP partners.
