Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases: Partnership Building Workshop

17-19 June 2019

ICMS, The Bayes Centre, 47 Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9BT

The Biotechnology and Biological Science Research Councils on behalf of the UK Research and Innovation is working with Economic and Social Research Council, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Natural Environment Research Council and Medical Research Council to convene this workshop to foster partnerships between mathematical, computational and social scientists with life scientists interested in infectious diseases of humans, animal and plants  e.g. biologists, ecologists, natural scientists, plant scientists, clinicians and veterinarians etc. from the UK, China, Israel and the US.  

This event will underpin the formation of transdisciplinary international partnership that would work together to submit bi-, tri- and/or tetra-lateral grant applications for the next Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases solicitation.

For information, last year’s EEID solicitation can be found here

The Objectives of the workshop are to:
·         Promoting  links with researchers from other discipline/country
·         Developing a richer understanding of the EEID research landscape in other countries
·         Providing a platform for discussing key research gaps and opportunities in EEID


Facilitating transdisciplinary collaboration with the aim of getting better research outcomes from new mathematics and social sciences research in our funded programmes.
