Welcome to RISKSUR

The RISKSUR project, an EU FP7 funded project running from 2012 to 2015, was aimed to develop decision support tools for the design of cost-effective risk-based surveillance systems that integrate the most recent advances in epidemiological methodologies, based on an interdisciplinary approach and tailored to the needs of individual EU Members States. This was achieved by the development of evaluation frameworks for animal health surveillance system designs for three different surveillance objectives with livestock diseases:

  • Early detection of exotic, new (emerging) and re-emerging diseases
  • Demonstration of freedom from diseases and infections
  • Determination of disease frequency and detection of cases of endemic animal diseases
