You are warmly invited to attend the event “Joining forces to escape the era of pandemics” organized by the PREZODE (Preventing ZOonotic Disease Emergence) initiative within the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union on Friday, 11th of February 2022.
The event will take place on Friday, 11th of February on-line from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CET; in-situ event at BOZAR in Brussels had to be cancelled, because of the sanitary situation due to Covid-19 pandemic.
With the support received from international organizations (WHO, FAO, OIE, UNEP, World Bank), as well as from the European Commission through the voice of its President, Ursula von der Leyen, the PREZODE initiative continues its development through both its co-construction process which already involved more than 1,000 actors from around 120 countries, and the official association of growing number of partners. As of today, more than 100 international partners, including 7 countries, signed the PREZODE Declaration of Intent.
The objective of the event “Joining forces to escape the era of pandemics” will be to:
Introduce the main research and operational activities performed in the field of prevention of zoonotic diseases emergencies at European level
Debate on the prevention and surveillance strategies in Europe and in the international context
Highlight the recommendations resulting from the co-construction workshops held in 2021, in Europe and beyond
