A  group of three ECDC observers were selected from ESCV and offered a 5-day program at the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) in Stockholm, Sweden, in Sept 2015. The Observership Visit provided a unique insight into Public Health Epidemiology and allowed the awardees interaction both with experienced ECDC staff and EUPHEM recruits.

The aims and objectives of the ECDC Observer visit can be found on the ECDC website.


Lectures and cases presented during past ESCV Workshops can be found in the Members area. For example those presented at the Congenital Viral Infections in Regensburg, March 2015, and at the Workshop Techniques in Clinical Virology held in Vienna, April 2014.
