Marrying technical progress and knowledge integration for better One Health outcomes in agrifood systems
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Center, FAO, Rome, Italy
Hybrid Event, 20/10/2022
This session is directed at people who are interested in seeing how One Health science and innovation can make a difference in the agrifood system transformation. Participants will be able to explore how we can integrate technical progress and, knowledge sharing through in-depth discussions with the One Health experts invited for the occasion.
- To highlight the opportunities that arise for better "One Health" outcomes from latest developments in whole genome sequencing and genomics
- To showcase how innovations in this area are changing access to genomic based information and solutions and discuss how national policies are important to capture the benefits of innovation.
Jean-Claude Manuguerra, Research Director, Environment and infectious risks, Institut Pasteur
This session is directed at people who are interested in seeing how One Health science and innovation can make a difference in the agrifood transformation system. This event will explore how we can integrate technical progress and knowledge sharing. The session will be structured and moderated in such a way that makes it accessible to a broad, non-specialist audience.
