EFSA releases the final report of the G-RAID project

Dr. Sebastian Napp, researcher within the Veterinary Epidemiology and Risk Analysis (EPIDEM) Subprogram at IRTA-CReSA participated in the “Generic approaches for Risk Assessment of Infectious animal disease introduction (G-RAID)” of EFSA.

The objective of the project was to compare the performance of different generic risk assessment models, for example models that allow the estimation of the probability of introduction of any exotic animal disease into a given country.

The project was carried out in collaboration with the Wageningen Bioveterinary Research (WBVR, The Netherlands), the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA, United Kingdom), the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA, United Kingdom), the Finnish Food Authority (Ruokavirasto, Finland) and the National Veterinary Institute-Technical University of Denmark (DTU-VET, Denmark).
