Bologna Declaration of Junior Researchers on One Health and EcoHealth


"Be as creative as possible, and develop new previously unknown ways to study, understand and improve health for all. Great science is like great art, it emerges out of creative minds to challenge our perspective of the world" (J. Berezowski).


 The organising committee of the NEOH Final Conference is pleased to offer young-minded researchers involved in One Health and EcoHealth activities the opportunity to share their own visions on One Health and EcoHealth.

A group of junior researchers is already working on this initiative to issue:

The Bologna Declaration of Junior Researchers on One Health and EcoHealth

to be presented at the NEOH Final Conference and become a manuscript or be included in a dissemination booklet after the Conference.

We would like that junior researchers express their insights and engagement for One Health and EcoHealth, in line with the Conference focus on "Creating Impact for One Health and EcoHealth".

We invite junior researchers to show:

-       their own motivations to engage in One Health and EcoHealth;

-       the role they would like to play with their competences;

-       the gaps they see, as well as the opportunities they intend to exploit;

-       their recommendations for advancing One Health and EcoHealth.

Considering novel ways to operationalize One Health and EcoHealth, we ask to indicate the priorities for working at the interface between humans, animals and the environment.

If you are a junior researcher and you wish to share your vision with the working group of the Bologna Declaration, you can send an e-mail to:

    with the object “BOLOGNA DECLARATION”.

To participate, you just need to write how you would like to contribute with few clear messages (150 words maximum) and clearly state your name, affiliation, professional status, and professional address.

The Bologna Declaration will be presented on Tuesday 11 September 2018 (second morning plenary session, 11.30 a.m. - 1.00 p.m.: see the Conference Programme).

On Monday 10 September (4.30 - 6.00 p.m.) a room is reserved for junior researchers and other young participants willing to discuss and fine tune the presentation with the Declaration working group.
