The World One Health Congress actively encourages the careers of promising researchers. The One Health Platform therefore established a One Health Fellowship Fund to provide fellowships to young scientists, with special attention for promising scientists from resource- challenged countries.
Intercontinental partnerships with One Health leaders in Africa and Asia, combined with the involvement of underserved communities and international associations like WHO, FAO, World Veterinary Association, World Medical Association, EcoHealth Alliance and CDC, will guarantee capacity building at the meeting and far beyond. In this way, the World One Health Congress will provide young One Health advocates with a unique opportunity to interact with world experts, gain further insights into their fields of interest and get inspired with new ideas and possibilities.
The call is open to participants from all over the globe. To be eligible, however, applicants must:
- be senior PhD students (expected to complete their dissertations within a year of the Congress) or must hold a PhD or a clinical qualification for no longer than 3 years at the time of the application. Special considerations (e.g. maternity/paternity leave) will be taken into account.
- register online via www.conftool.com/wohc2020, submit a proof of status (on institution’s letterhead from a faculty member or Department Head) and a research abstract (either as an author or a co-author). Their research must focus on one of the Congress main programme themes topics in the One Health Science, AMR or Science Policy Interface track.
The Fellowship apllication process is closed.
