Virtual Summer School

BEFORE summer school

  1. Visit the RISKSUR Training series page:
    http://www.fp7-risksur.eu/progress/training-and-webinars watch the following modules:
    1. Module 1: Introduction to Animal Health Surveillance
    2. Module 2: Risk-Based Surveillance
    3. Module 3: Evaluation of Animal Health Surveillance - Introduction
  2. If time allows, review the Best Practices for Surveillance prepared by the RISKSUR project:
    http://www.fp7-risksur.eu/progress/best-practice-document

The summer school will be based on a set of tools created to support surveillance design and re-design. The diagram below depicts the process of surveillance design and evaluation, and lists the tools (for practical work – webtool - and theoretical support - WIKIS) available to support this process:

You don’t need to worry about having time to get familiar with these tools before the course.

You will learn how to use them during the summer school week, through lectures and guided study hours. In the course schedule, you will find dedicated time to register in the tools, and specific instructions.
