What we do

Last update: 15 March 2011

EDENext has been structured to ensure it meets the European Commission’s expectations: “Knowledge on vectors generated under this project is expected to deliver a better understanding of the biology of vectors relevant to human and veterinary diseases.

"This new knowledge in turn should help (i) to predict the emergence and spread of new vector-borne diseases (VBD), and (ii) to assess the efficacy of different interventions and develop new interventions to interrupt or limit the spread of VBDs with the goal of protecting European citizens from these threats. A major impact is also expected on strengthening European research capacity in this field.”

In these pages you can find more information on how this will be achieved, with details of our objectives, methods and results.

  • Methods

    EDENext is structured along the lines used to great success by the EDEN project. Therefore a set of vertical vector groups (ticks, rodents and insectivores, mosquitoes, Culicoides, and sand flies) is complemented by horizontal themes which provide integrated technical input, minimising duplication and ensuring a coordinated approach throughout the project. These ‘integration groups’ comprise three work packages: modelling, data management and public health.
  • Project life

    In this section you can find details of the life of the EDENext project, including reports from the Kick-off Meeting, the first Annual Meeting held in Izmir, Turkey, in March 2012, the second Annual Meeting held in Barcelona, Spain, in March 2013, and the third Annual Meeting held in Rovaniemi, Finland, in March 2014.
