A European Technology Platform for Global Animal Health

Funded under: FP6


This interim vision document drawn up by the High Level Group 1 recommends the establishment of a European Technology Platform for Global Animal Health. The aim is to develop and deliver the most effective tools for controlling animal diseases that are of major importance to Europe and the rest of the world.
The Technology Platform is a joint initiative of industry and the research community; it is being actively encouraged by the European Commission services.
This document reflects the views of the High Level Group on the requirements for a Technology Platform. It proposes the launch of such a Platform and provides details of its proposed scope and organisation. This paper will act as a consultation and discussion document for all stakeholders.
The High Level Group intends to invite all stakeholders to participate in the future activities of the Platform with the intention of preparing a final version of this vision document. Linked to this will be the development of a comprehensive Strategic Research Agenda with implementation plans to ensure the vision is acted on.
