The risk of outbreaks of highly infectious diseases will continue to increase and hit ever wider areas as mobility, urbanisation and the environment continue to change. The EU is currently looking at how to better counter these threats, and coordinate research and crisis management across the Member States. Two mutually reinforcing capabilities have been put forward: ‘the EU capacity for public health, food safety and animal health preparedness and response to those threats, and the EU capacity for targeted and coordination research and innovation to deliver effectively and timely with successful therapeutic and prophylactic countermeasures, including new medicines’. Your scientific and expert feedback on the Commission’s Communication is wanted – don’t disappoint them!
