Annual Scientific Meeting of NCOH

Invitation NCOH Annual Scientific Meeting 2017

With great pleasure, we invite you to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH). 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 

The theme of this symposium is “Global Solutions to One Health”. 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. This One Health perspective will be the overarching subject of the annual meeting.

Date: Monday 19 June 2017
Time: 09.30 – 17.00 h
Location: Corpus- Willem Einthovenstraat 1, 2342 BH Oegstgeest

In the afternoon, there will be two thematic parallel sessions where the various perspectives will be highlighted. This will be followed by a networking event where we aim to stimulate collaborations between the NCOH themes.
