3rd Symposium for Emerging Viral Diseases
The Symposium “Covid-19 and beyond: Understanding emerging viral diseases and their public health impact” is hosted by the Centre for Emerging Viral Diseases which is dedicated to the better understanding of emerging viruses.
Aim of the event is a follow up of two earlier successful and inspiring meetings by bringing together scientists, public health experts and policy makers. The overarching topic of the meeting will be the central question: How can we prevent future outbreaks, and if we cannot prevent them, how can we be better prepared? What lessons can we learn from the failures of the Covid-19 pandemic? Which novel tools do we have, how can we use them, and ultimately: how can scientists, public health specialists and society work together to alleviate the impact of epidemics?
More detailed information will follow.
