EPIZONE European Research Group

EPIZONE European Research Group is the international network of veterinary research institutes working on epizootic animal diseases. This netwerk plays a key role in research on prevention, detection and control of animal diseases of poultry, swine, fish, sheep, cattle, horses and wildlife in order to reduce both the risks and the harm to animal health in the EU and beyond. Wageningen Bioveterinary Research coordinates EPIZONE.

In EPIZONE over 300 scientists worldwide strive for the common EPIZONE goal, to improve, standardise, and develop (new):

  • diagnostic methods
  • vaccines, intervention strategies
  • surveillance, epidemiology studies
  • risk analyses

for better prevention and control of infectious animal diseases.

History of EPIZONE

May 2012 the successful EPIZONE EU Network of Excellence for Epizootic Disease Diagnosis and Control (2006-2012) has turned into a European Research Group (ERG). The former partners of the EPIZONE Network of Excellence are the founding partners of the ERG. These founding partner institutes will participate in cooperative research and also support the ERG financially. Through creation of the EPIZONE ERG we want to keep the successful EPIZONE community together and even enlarge it. Continuing the international fruitful cooperation should also enable us to generate extra research funding.
