WiLiMAN-ID Ecology of Wildlife, Livestock, huMan and Infectious Diseases in changing environments


Duration: 01.05.2023 – 30.04.2028

Funding: Europäische Union

The project will investigate host-pathogen interactions, both in the field and with mathematical models. By studying the dynamics of host-pathogen interactions at different scales and in different ecosystems, the overall objective of WiLiMan-ID is to identify the key factors responsible for the spread and persistence of infectious diseases in animals in changing environments in order to support policy makers in preventive surveillance and control. The project focuses on various infectious diseases, such as African swine fever, highly pathogenic avian influenza, West Nile infection, transmissible spongiform encephalopathy and African horse sickness.
