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.

AGINFRA+ aims to exploit core e-infrastructures such as EGI.eu, OpenAIRE, EUDAT and D4Science, towards the evolution of the AGINFRA data infrastructure, so as to provide a sustainable channel addressing adjacent but not fully connected user communities around Agriculture and Food.
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.
