OH-BOOST

The One Health-BOOST (OH-Boost) Project aims to enhance research and innovation excellence and improve the management capacities of the Estonian University of Life Sciences and Tartu University in the field of One Health through partnering with the University of Helsinki and the University of Milan. 


One Health is an integrated, unifying approach to balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and the environment. It is particularly important to prevent, predict, detect, and respond to global health threats. It is a crucial research domain that focuses on the interconnectedness of human, animal, and environmental health. The Estonian University of Life Sciences and Tartu University aspire to become centers of excellence in this field globally, enhancing their research profile and international visibility.

The Baltic-German University Liaison Office awarded a competitive small research grant to the COMBIVET & OH-BOOST researchers to conduct collaborative research with Federal Research Institute of Animal Health in Mariensee, Germany.
