Capacity building will be 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.

Open access

A Hub virtual learning environment, i-HEN, which uses the Moodle platform, will be key to our capacity-building work. This will contain information resources and learning materials developed through the People & poultry and Disease dynamics research areas for partner learning, much of which will be made available for distance learning on an open access basis.

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
