Congratulations to Julie Shapiro, Zuckerman Postdoc Scholar (alum), for co-leading a report on Biodiversity and Pandemics through the Eklipse Project
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
Building on existing relevant work on research agendas and knowledge gap analysis; identifying interdisciplinary research and action priorities that contribute to a strategic research agenda on biodiversity and pandemics; addressing the critical interlinkages between relevant sectors needed to make future actions more effective.
This request for Knowledge Synthesis was identified from a workshop co-organized by Eklipse and the EC- Knowledge Centre for Biodiversity.It brought representatives from a range of European Commission services together with high-level scientists to identify challenges and evidence needs related to the links between Biodiversity and human health, including zoonotic and infectious diseases. It aims to support the development of a strategic research agenda on biodiversity and pandemics, with relevant agencies and initiatives, and aligned with relevant sectoral policy agendas.
