The event is organised by Croatian Veterinary Institute, lead beneficiary of the project.

During the meeting will be recap the overall status of the project and will be present the carried out activities in order to monitoring the implementation, compare possible needs proposed by the partner and define the general lines for future coordinated actions. Moreover, the meeting will be occasion to introduce the new project partner from Montenegro: the Centre for Ecotoxicological Research of Montenegro - CETI.

CAPS2 project considers four intervention areas: strengthening of diagnostic services, GIS application development, National Surveillance Plans preparation, risk assessment. In the course of the meeting will be analysed activities carried out by each partners for every area and will be considered their technical and training needs to carry on the project. Therefore, in that occasion, the Committee will also include some representative of Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of Abruzzo and Molise Regions, the beneficiary who provides the laboratory and GIS training.

After discussing the technical aspects, financial and administrative matters relating to the management of the budget and expenses will be faced.

This year, the sixth annual workshop on European national reference laboratories for brucellosis was held on 26-27 September 2013 at the Croatian Veterinary Institute in Zagreb. The host of the meeting, Croatian Veterinary Institute, Laboratory for Bacterial Zoonoses and Molecular Diagnostics of Bacterial Diseases, hosted the representatives of 24 European Union Member States, Switzerland, Norway, EU candidate countries FYR Macedonia and Turkey, and other countries from the region: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia. At the opening of the workshop, director of the Veterinary Institute Professor Dr. Željko Cvetnić acquainted the participants with the history and different departments of the Institute: Veterinary branches, Poultry Centre, departments and laboratories, while Dr. Silvio Špičić spoke about the current state of brucellosis in domestic and wild animals in Croatia. Dr. Bruno Garin Batui, head of the EU reference laboratory for brucellosis, OIE/FAO reference laboratory, ANSES, Maison-Alfort from France, was given a special letter of gratitude as a sign of the long-lasting successful cooperation and assistance in the professional and scientific development of the Laboratory for Bacterial Zoonoses and Molecular Diagnostics of Bacterial Diseases.

The two-day workshop addressed topics relating to the recent activities of the EU reference laboratory, and the verified results of serological, bacteriological and molecular tests to verify the work of the laboratory. During the round table, current issues for each individual country were presented. Furthermore, at a dinner for all participants at the Trajbar Team Equestrian Club in Zaprešić, those present enjoyed themselves until the early hours. The best indicators of the success of the workshop are the messages of thanks and praise that we are still receiving, days after the close of the workshop.

The symposium “Brucellosis in Croatia and neighbouring countries”, jointly organised by the Committee for Animal and Comparative Pathology, Department of Medical Sciences of the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts and the Croatian Veterinary Institute, was held at the palace of the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts on Wednesday, 25 September 2013. The symposium was opened by Academic Marko Pećina, Secretary of the Department of Medical Sciences of CASA. This was followed by lectures given by the leading experts for the diagnosis of brucellosis, from Croatia and the countries of the region.

 

Brucellosis is one of the most widespread zoonoses, a disease that is transmitted from animals to humans. The spread of brucellosis in the European Union and the dangers its occurrence brings were discussed at the symposium, as well as the situation in other European countries. Efficient controls of the spread of brucellosis in recent decades have countered for the lack of epidemiological research in the countries of Southeast Europe. However, progress has been made in the processing of isolates of different species of the genus Brucella using the most modern molecular techniques, and as such more than 50 new genotypes have been entered into the international brucellosis database. This research should contribute to the global efforts to control and eradicate brucellosis, particularly if such research is carried out on a wider, regional basis.
