The lessons from the past have an impact on today’s research, but also influence the direction of tomorrow. This message resonates with the theme of the Annual Scientific Meeting 2023 of the Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) which took place at the Geertekerk in Utrecht: ‘Are we ready for the next pandemic?’ Annemarie Rebel (Wageningen University & Research) opened the event on behalf of NCOH’s Executive Board: “There are future challenges that we need to be prepared for. We must work together and involve young scientists in the process.”
This year, the ASM was jointly organised by Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht and moderated by Lidwien Smit (UU) and Marc Bonten (UMC Utrecht).
In short pitches nine PhD’s from the NCOH organisations presented their research during the NCOH’s Annual Scientific Meeting on 23 June 2023 in Utrecht. The result was a diverse array of topics all gearing towards solutions for One Health challenges.
