10 million for research into the risk of an outbreak of infectious diseases

Over the coming next five years partners from the Netherlands Centre for One Health will investigate how the Netherlands can be better prepared for infectious diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. Professor Marion Koopmans (Erasmus MC) is project leader of the research project. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is one of the academic partners.

The consortium will investigate how changes in climate, landscape, water management and travel contribute to the risk of an outbreak of infectious diseases. For more information, click here. Hans Heesterbeek, Andrea Gröne and Hélène Verheije are involved from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
