ERFAN - Enhancing Research For Africa Network

 

ERFAN - Enhancing Research for Africa Network is an international scientific network created because of the experience gained by the IZSAM in the field of international cooperation in Africa. The ERFAN project was presented to the World Organisation for Animal Health in July 2018 for funding and it was approved in December of the same year.

 

ERFAN's partner countries are 17, and 32 Institutions that have joined the network, including Central Veterinary Laboratories and Faculties of Veterinary Medicine.

 

ERFAN is a strategic platform to build fruitful collaborations for both African countries and Italian institutions, allowing a continuous and updated knowledge of animal and human health conditions in relation to the African continent.

The Italian Ministry of Health has appointed the IZSAM as lead partner of the ERFAN Network, appointing Dr Massimo Scacchia as project leader.

 

The Partners as following have defined the organizational structure:
