MediPIET under the EU Initiative on Health Security: Kick off meeting

7 Jun 2021

In June 2021, the Mediterranean and Black Sea Programme in Intervention Epidemiology Training (MediPIET) is becoming an inherent component of a larger European Commission action entitled EU Initiative on Health Security, implemented by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). ECDC is organising a Kick-off meeting with the MediPIET Training Centres Forum (TCF) to mark the formal hand-over from the previous implementer of MediPIET, Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) and Fundación Estatal, Salud, Infancia y Bienestar Social (FCSAI), and to initiate implementation of activities under the Work Package 1 (MediPIET) of the EU Initiative on Health Security.

Among other objectives of the meeting, the participants will get an overview of the EU Initiative on Health Security, discuss MediPIET activities for the upcoming period of 2021-2025, share achievements of MediPIET to date, and discuss and agree on next steps.
