This international, interdisciplinary, educational and capacity building workshop will bring together the two subjects of infectious diseases and invasive species and the context of climate change.

The workshop will address different topics, from field-work and collecting of data to the building and validating of models, to the adjustment of models to take into account the changing environment and the social characteristics, and to the design and implementation of strategies to fight infectious diseases and invasive species. This will be done through lectures, practical training and round table discussions. Special emphasis will be put on African diseases and invasive species, as well as the characteristics of changing environment in Africa. The workshop is mostly aimed to young researchers and postgraduate students, with a majority coming from Africa. International experts from around the world will give the mini-courses and lectures and will lead the working groups.
