Abstract [en]

Combating zoonoses effectively requires an approach where researchers take in account the ‘‘one health’’ concepts. TheInfection Ecology and Epidemiology, IEE network was started to stimulate interdisciplinary projects with potential toincrease knowledge of the emergence, spread and effects of infectious disease in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Themain objective for IEE is to provide a platform where researchers from multiple medical and ecological disciplines caninteract and create synergies through collaboration, annual meetings and workshops.The first IEE meeting, in March 2010, served as a unique opportunity for Swedish researchers (veterinarians, physicians,ecologists, epidemiologists and others with relevant backgrounds) interested in infectious diseases to interact over disci-plinary boundaries. The meeting was a great success with almost 100 participants from across the nation. Since the meetinginterest in IEE has continued to increase and the number of researchers supporting IEE now has now passed 150.The projects within the IEE network range from antibiotic resistance in bacteria to the genetic virology of vector-bornepathogens, zoonotic viroses and gastrointestinal pathogens. The rationale is not to build up new laboratory facilities, but touse and collaborate within already established research structures. Within the network we have access to original samples ofanimal, human and environmental origin for collaborative projects for detection and characterization of viruses andbacteria. We hope that the IEE network will provide a sustainable platform for interdisciplinary collaborations and a stronginternational research environment for research on zoonotic infections.
