Capacity building is being achieved in many ways, including via staff exchanges between partners and countries, field-based workshops supported by online courses, and activities at stakeholder workshops and annual conferences.

AMR detection

A Hub collaboration has seen scores of scientists trained in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) detection, helping to reduce the skills gaps in laboratories across the world.


Online learning

iHen logoA Hub virtual learning environment, iHEN, which uses the Moodle platform, is key to our capacity-building work. This contains information resources and learning materials developed through the People & poultry and Disease dynamics research areas for partner learning and training. Some educational materials are being made available as open access resources.

A One Health approach will underpin all our capacity building work, which will address the following areas:

  • Research, including the development of methodologies, research tools and data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, risk management, research communications and partnership working.
  • Management, including project management, leadership skills and staff development.
  • Reflection, including personal development profiles, specifically for younger researchers and monitoring progress
