Dr. Aneta Afelt spoke at the MediLabSecure global conference in a roundtable dedicated to the impact of the One Health concept on national health strategy. The meeting, held at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, focused on regional and multisectoral collaboration to improve global health.

In her talk, Dr. Afelt highlighted the relationship between climate change and epidemiological risk in relation to the MOSAIC project, which has been implemented by an international team of researchers with IT support from ICM UW since early 2024 – in terms of building an open data infrastructure and a FAIR-compliant platform.

MOSAIC (Multi-site application of Open Science in the creAtion of healthy environments Involving local Communities) – focuses on open, multimodal, and replicable information ecosystems supporting cross-border communities. MOSAIC secured funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe framework program: Environment and health – Planetary health (HORIZON-HLTH-2023-ENVHLTH-02-01). The task is being carried out by an international consortium of 15 institutions led by the French institute IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement). The role of ICM UW is to prepare data infrastructure and software for stakeholders. The leader of the Polish MOSAIC team is Dr. Aneta Afelt (assistant professor at ICM UW, member of Espace-DEV research group affiliated with IRD).
