Science policy

On Monday 16 March, in addition to the scientific program, a real time Science Policy Interface (SPI) programme will be organized.

SPI is freely accessible to congress participants. Register now >

The special one-day Science Policy Interface (SPI) programme is specifically designed to bridge the gap between science and health policy. In a series of eleven lectures, the world’s leading experts will evaluate recent health crises like the outbreaks of Ebola, Q-Fever, BSE, pandemic swine flu and SARS. They will also cover the most imminent public health challenges, unmasking potential killers like avian influenza virus, the henipavirus and Rift Valley Fever virus. Special attention will go to the antimicrobial resistance and the question how to avoid a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can once again kill.
