Cooperation

Work Package 4 – Networking of networks for laboratory response

  • Establishment and strengthening of cooperation between networks.
  • Identification of relevant networks and agencies, establishment of agreements on cooperation as well as definition of tasks in inter-epidemic (IEM) and outbreak response times (ORM).
  • Assessment of occurrence of emergent and re-emergent high cross-border health threats pathogens of risk group 3 and 4 will be continuously reviewed, to identify what are the current and future serious cross-border health threats for Europe.
  • At least 6 meetings with relevant other networks and stakeholders will be performed to evaluate lessons learned from previous outbreaks and to strengthen the cooperation and interoperability between networks and stakeholders.
  • Implementation of agreed activities among networks and agencies and stakeholders for laboratory outbreak management (ORM).
  • A practical wet-laboratory exercise to prove mechanisms in ORM will be organized.”
