Tasks and composition

It represents the Zoonoses Platform externally and manages the day-to-day business together with the Secretariat. The board meets five times a year as a rule. In its meetings, the Internal Advisory Board makes strategic decisions on the further development of the Zoonoses Platform, develops ideas for the organization of zoonoses research in Germany, acts as the scientific committee of the annual zoonoses symposium, reviews applications for pilot and cross-sectional projects and workshops submitted to the Zoonoses Platform from its membership and accompanies them after they have been approved.
