First EWDA Student Workshop 2005
The First EWDA Student Workshop was held from April 28th to May 1st 2005 at the Conference Centre of the Merieux Foundation – Les Pensieres, Veyrier-du-Lac, France, and was a great success!
Thirty-six students and twelve speakers from 11 European countries, the United States and Mexico attended the first EWDA Student Workshop. The theme of the workshop was emerging diseases and zoonoses in wildlife reservoirs, and covered disease investigation, ecology and management. Presentations from the speakers were followed by student presentations, after which small groups of students joined each of the established researchers for a “student working session” to discuss related topics in a more convivial atmosphere. The fantastic sharing of the speakers’ experiences, knowledge and motivation has produced calls for a Second EWDA Student Workshop that will be held in Greece in April 2007!
