NCOH participates in the EU-funded project One Health European Joint Programme (One Health EJP)

NCOH Partners are involved in a recently-granted One Health European Joint Programme, which started last January. In the One Health EJP, 39 partners from 19 EU member states are gathered to create a sustainable European One Health framework by integration and alignment of medical, veterinary and food institutes through joint programming of research agendas matching the needs of European and national policy makers and stakeholders. In the Netherlands, these organisations are already collaborating closely to counteract the threat of emerging zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance. The Dutch One Health approach can now also be deployed at EU level. The One Health EJP will run for five years with a total budget of 90 Million Euro.

OneHealth-EJPThe NCOH Partners WBVR (WUR) and RIVM are beneficiaries within the One Health EJP. Connected to these beneficiaries as third parties are the NCOH Partners Erasmus MC, UMC Utrecht, Utrecht University/Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Wageningen University. They participate in the following projects:
