Identify signs and drivers of zoonotic diseases emergence and digital data resources for Epidemic Intelligence
This workshop will provide a forum for showcasing current research and findings in the field as well as for identifying critical questions and future research challenges including the provisioning of new tools and data for Epidemic Intelligence and highlighting the interdisciplinary approaches needed to meet them under the One Health umbrella.
The scientific program will be organized in 6 sessions with plenary lectures by invited speakers followed by a presentation session (oral or posters) from MOOD partners and other invited experts, with a final round table discussion.
