Biology and control of vector-borne infections in Europe

  • Bødker, Rene (Project Participant)

    Project Details


    The EDENext project (Biology and control of vector-borne diseases in Europe) builds on the concepts, methods, tools and results of the FP6 EDEN project (Emerging diseases in a changing European environment). We adopt here the same general approach of understanding and explaining the biological, ecological and epidemiological processes in order to develop a set of state-of-the-art methods and tools to improve prevention, surveillance and control of vector populations, and vector-borne diseases (VBD). The EDEN project has been focusing on the effects of environmental changes on the emergence of VBD.
    Here, we want to explain and model the processes leading to the introduction, establishment, and spread of vectors and/or vector-borne diseases, and assess the possible control strategies to break the epidemiological cycles of vector-borne diseases. The project structure follows that of EDEN that was so conspicuously successful, with a set of vertical disease related activities linked by horizontal themes providing integrated technical input to all vertical groups, thereby minimising duplication and ensuring a coordinated approach throughout the project.
