Poirier, Aurore; Horton, Daniel; van der Poel, W.H.M.; La Ragione, Roberto


Short Term Missions (STMs) are small co-funded travel grants which facilitate the exchange of scientific expertise, methodologies, equipment, and facilities to our consortium members. The aim of these missions is to harmonise the existing approaches and methodologies within the One Health EJP (OHEJP).
These STMs drive research forward in a collaborative and non-duplicative fashion to strengthen the scientific capacity within the OHEJP, and to also contribute to the future prevention, preparedness, detection, and response of the EU to foodborne and other emerging threats across human-animal-environmental sectors.
The OHEJP is able to co-fund up to ten STMs each year (each funded 44% by the EU). The Education and Training activities team from Work Package 6 (WP6) are responsible for co-ordinating the call, selection of applicants for funding and reporting on the short term missions funded each yea
