Webinar “Biosecurity Enhanced Through Training Evaluation and Raising Awareness – A new COST Action to improve biosecurity in livestock” by Alberto Allepuz
The webinar about COST Action BETTER was presented by Alberto Allepuz. Alberto is a veterinary epidemiologist working at the Department of Animal Health and Anatomy of the Autonomous University of Barcelona, in Spain.
Biosecurity is limited by different factors such as i) lack of knowledge on ways for improvement, especially in extensive systems or settings with low resources; ii) shortage of adequate ways to enhance communication; iii) diversity of methodologies to assess and measure the implementation of biosecurity measures and their cost-effectiveness and iv) low number of trained professionals. To approach these challenges, a new COST Action (https://better-biosecurity.eu/) on biosecurity was launched in October 2021. The webinar will present the structure and objectives of the project, together with the planned activities and opportunities for collaboration and involvement.
