On 22-24 May 2019, the first Annual Scientific Meeting of the One Health European Joint Programme (OHEJP) on food-borne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and emerging threats will be held at the Teagasc Conference Centre, Ashtown, Dublin. The OHEJP is an EU Horizon 2020, co-funded scientific collaborative research programme that aims to strengthen cooperation between its 39 partners and to help prevent and control food-borne and environmental contaminants that affect human health, through joint actions on foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and emerging microbiological threats.

The conference is organised by Dr. Geraldine Duffy, Teagasc and Dr Dearbháile Morris, National University of Ireland Galway in collaboration with a local organising team at Teagasc, National University of Galway, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Food Safety Authority of Ireland, University College Dublin, Health Protection Surveillance Centre and the EJP project management team.

Our partner, Matthias Filter, from BfR will orally present a paper by the name, “Virtual Research Environments (VRE): Supporting One Health Research Communities - the ORION Experience”. In the presentation, a special mention on provided assistance of the AGINFRA+ project to the ORION project will be performed. The AGINFRA+ project has provided to the ORION project a VRE for free and it was explored if the VRE could be exploited to support project management, communication, and knowledge exchange in the One Health domain in the future. The paper concludes with the assumption that cloud-based research infrastructures, developed within the AGINFRA+ project, have also a high uptake potential in the One Health domain.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

OUR COMMUNITIES

The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.

AGROCLIMATIC AND ECONOMIC MODELLING

This community focuses on use cases aim to support the workflow of researchers, intermediaries and business analysts working on crop modelling, crop phenology estimation and yield forecasting, as well as related activities in the area of policy and decision support in food security, farm management advice and related activities.

FOOD SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT

This community focuses on use cases to support scientists in the multidisciplinary field of risk assessment and emerging risk identification as there is currently a strong need to create new technology-supported solutions that facilitate the knowledge integration processes relevant for these tasks.

FOOD SECURITY

This community focuses on use cases related to the high-throughput phenotyping large amount of data which need to be analyzed immediately for decision making. This aims to support phenomics researchers to select plant species and varieties which are the most adapted to specific environments and to global changes.
