Working groups

The project is divided into six workpackages.  

  • WP0 aims at the coordination of the project.
  • WP1 coordinates the human virology labs and the biosafety activities
  • WP2 ensures the activities with veterinary laboratories of virology.
  • WP3 is responsible of the medical entomology groups and related activities.
  • WP4 is responsible of the public health activities related to the improvement of the integrated surveillance that will enhance the preparedness of beneficiary countries to emerging and re-emerging mosquito transmitted viruses and emerging respiratory viruses. 
  • WP5 aims at integrating environmental and ecological features in the development of emerging infections’ risk assessment and early warning tools
  • WP6 aims at the communication and dissemination of the project

A first cluster of activities concerning laboratory preparedness and response capacities to common health threats related to arboviruses and their vectors aims at coordinated actions between WP1, WP2 and WP3

A second cluster of activities focusing on awareness of the added value of itnegrated surveillance, risk assessment and early warning to prevent and control epidemics and epizootics aims at coordinated actions between WP4, WP5 and WP6.

Interaction between working groups at the training sessions is fostered and interactive sessions between the different WP leaders, heads of labs are held during project meetings.

Several workshops, training sessions and meetings have already been conducted and are listed under the "events" section of this website.

The biosafety activities are implemented by both WP1 and WP2.

The transversal activities range from sharing of documents, information and SOPs to sharing of training modules where appropriate.

The interconnectivity between the six different workpackages and the different coordination bodies are schematically represented in the following figure:
