Scientific Expertise: Veterinary medicine (miscellaneous)
Contribution: Experience in the design and implementation of biosecurity assessment tools in different production systems.
Motivation: The identification of biosecurity as a fundamental tool to manage the sanitary challenges of current-day animal production, but the understanding of the challenges in the promotion of these concepts to farmers
Scientific Background: I've been working in veterinary epidemiology and animal disease control for the past 20 years. Experience in risk assessment, contact networks, risk factor analysis and development of animal disease control systems.
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding organisation for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and beyond and enable researchers and innovators to grow their ideas in any science and technology field by sharing them with their peers. COST Actions are bottom-up networks with a duration of four years that boost research, innovation and careers.
The BETTER COST Action CA20103 will evaluate how biosecurity is currently used and will use participative approaches to understand motivators and barriers for biosecurity implementation.
