Objective

The disease threats to the livestock industry have increased steadily over the past decades as a result of globalisation, evolving pathogens and climate change. Responding to animal disease threats relies heavily on science; research makes a significant contribution to the development of disease control policy and the translation of policy, and other drivers for improving animal health, into practical effect.

The disease threats to the livestock industry have increased steadily over the past decades as a result of globalisation, evolving pathogens and climate change. Responding to animal disease threats relies heavily on science; research makes a significant contribution to the development of disease control policy and the translation of policy, and other drivers for improving animal health, into practical effect. Although the legislation that underpins policy for the control of statutory diseases is determined at the EU level, the research that supports policy development and implementation is primarily carried out at the national level and is largely uncoordinated as is the research on other major infectious diseases currently affecting livestock production.
The aim of the Animal Health ERA-NET was to build on and accelerate the work of the SCAR CWG in developing a durable focused network of national research founders in Member and Associated States of the EU for the purpose of sharing information, coordinating activities and working towards a common research agenda and mutual research funding activities. The scope of the project included emerging and major infectious diseases of production animals, including fish and bees and including those conditions which pose a threat to human health but excluding food safety issues relating to livestock products and diseases of wildlife except where they act as reservoirs of infection for humans or production animals.
The objectives of the ERA-NET were delivered through the following four work packages:
WP1. Project coordination, management, communication and dissemination;
WP2. Mapping and analysis of existing research and current needs and information on the commissioning and management of joint programmes;
WP3. Develop, test, evaluate and refine instruments (Pilots) and
WP4. Developing a strategic transnational animal health research agenda.

Mapping

A framework was established under the CWG for the capture of research project information and a database developed which is serving the needs for the collection of information for both EMIDA and the CWG. Details of over 2,100 projects have been uploaded to the project database by the project partners. To complete the mapping of the research landscape, three other databases of supporting information, in the form of publications over the past four years, international animal health related pate...

A framework was established under the CWG for the capture of research project information and a database developed which is serving the needs for the collection of information for both EMIDA and the CWG. Details of over 2,100 projects have been uploaded to the project database by the project partners. To complete the mapping of the research landscape, three other databases of supporting information, in the form of publications over the past four years, international animal health related patents and EC funded animal health related projects, were also developed using data from international scientific databases. These databases, the methodology behind them and the associated reports on research outputs can be accessed on the project website. A questionnaire on current management practices relating to the research programmes of the project partners and their perceived needs and priority topics of interest for inclusion in a common call was conducted and the resulting report is also available on the project website.
