STAR-IDAZ.be, the representation of Belgium in STAR-IDAZ IRC, together with Flanders Vaccine and Enterprise Europe Network Flanders join forces to organize an event to stimulate collaboration between researchers in the field of monitoring and control of infectious diseases (One Health approach). This matchmaking event will offer participants the opportunity to expand their network, find potential collaboration partners with the right expertise, and establish new project consortia.
The event, will thus be dedicated to consortium building. The main part of the event will comprise bilateral meetings between people interested in collaborative projects on these topics
