NCOH Science Café 2018
Another NCOH year of exciting and important research. It's time for an update!
You and all NCOH scientists are invited to join the NCOH Science Café 2018 to get up to speed with the latest developments and meet fellow NCOH colleagues. Theme: Global Solutions to One Health Challenges. Prevention and control of infectious diseases outbreaks are important societal challenges that require an integrated and balanced perspective in which human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental elements and considerations are integrated.
The meeting is aimed at researchers from our Partners and Associates that are involved in all the NCOH Strategic Research Themes. We particularly encourage young researchers (PhD students, postdocs) to join this meeting. The event is free of charge, but registration is required.
