Elaborating from the European One Health/Ecohealth (OH/EH) workshop that took place in fall 2016 and aimed to bring together different communities and explore collaborative potential, the creation of European networks focusing on the development of important OH/EH perspectives was a direct output from discussions at the end of some sessions, in particular:
- A network on transdisciplinary One Health education.
- A network integrating inputs from social sciences in One Health/EcoHealth actions and networks.
- A network aiming at translating research findings on the Environment-Microbiome-Health axis into policy making, with a view to make healthy ecosystems a cost-effective disease prevention healthcare strategy.
It was also suggested that a European Community of Practice could be initiated in order to support these several
concrete networking initiatives, and to help to promote the building of other emerging initiatives.
