From Wildlife Market to Wild Financial market 29 October: Annual Scientific Meeting

By joining forces we are building a better future. Pandemics will continue to emerge and spread rapidly due to globalization, pressure on our natural world, environmental degradation and dwindling biodiversity. Together we can address this global #onehealthchallenge!

During our Annual Scientific Meeting on 26 October, we have focused on the following questions:

  • Wild Life Markets; can they stay open?
  • Working with Uncertainty: how do you make decisions during a pandemic caused by a new virus?
  • Science communication during a crisis – Sticking to the Facts or Forget about the Facts?
  • What were the early warning signals? How can we detect earlier and prepare better?
  • What is the societal and economic impact of this pandemic?
  • And last but not least:
    • Do we need a new scientific approach?
    • What does the future disease X research agenda look like?
