The 5th International One Health Congress offers early career scientists a unique opportunity to present their latest work, and to meet and foster collaborations with the international One Health community in a four days high-level congress. The Open Call for Congress Fellowship Applications has been launched on 1 August 2017. The competition is open to participants from all over the globe. To be eligible,
however, applicants must:

Application forms, proofs of status and research abstracts must be e-mailed to the OHP’s management, Mr. David De Pooter at by 1 December 2017. All applications will be judged by an International Evaluation Committee of One Health
