LinkTADs final event at the EPIZONE meeting in Madrid

16 September 2016 - LinkTADs project is an EC-funded, FAO-lead research consortium that aims to coordinate research on transboundary animal diseases and zoonoses (both epidemiology and laboratory aspects) between the European Union and China. After almost three years, the project will soon come to its end. A series of final dissemination events will take place in Europe and China.

The final European dissemination event will take place as an open session within the Framework of the 10th Annual Meeting of EPIZONE “Going Viral”, which will take place on 27-29 September 2016 in Madrid, Spain. Everyone is welcome to attend at no cost (other than the registration to EPIZONE).

Representatives from different LinkTADs partners, plus the EC would like to share with you the main accomplishments and results, as well as some of the tools that will remain in place to facilitate the research community to find funds, partners or information on the process. In these three years, the project has worked hard to increase opportunities for researchers in the EU and in China to collaborate and share knowledge on animal health.

On 29th September, from 11:40 until 16:20, the LinkTADs partners will introduce the project’s main achievements in the coordination of veterinary research between the EU and China. This will be a unique opportunity for all researchers interested in animal health to learn more about research and cooperation opportunities between the EU and China, including under Horizon 2020 and with a future outlook.

You can find the detailed agenda of the session here; for additional information about the Epizone meeting, as well as the venue, please click here. You can contact Karen Bengtsson ([email protected]) for more information on the event, as well as for travel reimbursement options for young European researchers (i.e. to cover the travel costs).

We hope you will be able to attend our session and look forward to fruitful discussions.

For those in China, another dissemination event will take place in Kunming, Yunnan, on 20-23 October 2016, organized at a conference from the Association of Veterinary Biotechnology and the Association of Veterinary Immunology. Around 400-500 participants from research institutes, universities and industries are expected.
