The ARBONET objectives are:
i) To assess different epidemiological models that predict transmission of WNV in a European context to design proper early warning systems and select intervention strategies for lowering the risk of WNV transmission to equines and humans.
ii) To evaluate the efficacy of using animals as early indicators of CCHFV presence and transmission in early warning systems for free but at-risk-of-introduction countries and for prompt recognition of seasonal re-emergence of the virus in infected countries.
iii) To propose and assess an early warning system for possible scenarios of RVFV introduction into Europe.
iv) To develop and use protocols and strategies to examine how CCHFV, WNV and RVFV interact with their arthropod vectors/hosts, information that can ultimately contribute to epidemiological modelling, risk-based surveillance and improved, targeted control strategies.
