SUBGROUPS:   Animal Health

The activities of the Animal Health Subgroup were accelerated and built upon through the European Commission (EC) funded project EMIDA (Coordination of European Research on Emerging and Major Infectious Diseases of Livestock). EMIDA began in April 2008 and will end in December 2011 making way for a new ERA-NET coordinating European animal health and welfare research called ANIHWA set to begin in January 2012. EC funding for EMIDA enabled the group to map the European research landscape through the production and analysis of a number of databases on research projects, research publications, research patents and EC funded projects in the field of animal health. This analysis led to the identification of a number of research topics which were taken forward in two Common Calls each involving about 20 funding partners and their combined budget of 20 million Euros. Another output of EMIDA was the development of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for which the first step was a review of foresight studies, the second step was a Delphi Study and Consensus Workshop and third was to bring all of this together for the SRA. The outputs of EMIDA are all available from the Resources section of this website.
