Working Group 4
Global trends, risk assessment and research agenda consolidation and prioritisation
WG 4 will develop models projecting how a range of global drivers may impact upon the occurrence, transmission, risk and importance of different FBP in Europe by use of scenario analysis, with input from the Euro-FBP network.
A range of global drivers is expected to affluence the distribution and impact of FBP, including;
These drivers are all likely to affect FBP occurrence, transmission, risk, and importance, in Europe and globally. WG IV will assess such drivers using a scenario analysis approach (workshop and symposia), and based on the results a prioritised agenda for short-term and long-term research will be developed. The scenario analyses and considerastion of multiple global drivers will enable projections on how the risk and occurrence of FBP may be expected in the future. This will also be a useful basis for prioritizing future research needs and form a basis for developing a targeted research strategy for the future, with focus on high-ranking FBP from WG 1.
