Kickoff Webinar for the Global One Health – Transformative Research Challenge Special Prize
WUR is hosting the Global One Health special prize within the Transformative Research Challenge of World Food Forum (WFF). Teams of young and young-at-heart researchers are invited to submit a two-page concept note proposing an innovative research idea to help end hunger and transform our agrifood systems. Shortlisted participants receive expert mentorship to help translate their concepts into sound research papers and present them at the WFF global stage in October.
The Global One Health special prize focuses on the need for a global approach for effective and balanced prevention of emerging infectious diseases and responsible crisis management. Researchers are being pushed to propose One Health solutions to minimize the effects of emerging infectious diseases that negatively impact animal, human and environmental health. With an intrinsic focus on the creation of safer agrifood systems that are shielded from zoonotic diseases, in turn, promoting healthier livestock, animals and humans alike. With a One Health approach, agrifood systems are more resilient, and help deliver towards the goal of achieving Zero Hunger for All.
In this kickoff webinar you will learn more about:
- Global One Health research at Wageningen University (WUR) and beyond
