MAN-IMAL Symposium - 14 November 2018

The “One World, One Health” concept and biodiversity

On November 14, 2018, the MAN-IMAL programme will welcome for the 6th time representatives from WHO, FAO, and France Stratégie, in partnership with IDOH (Infectious Diseases and One Health), for a day of cross-disciplinary conferences around the "One World, One Health" concept and the biodiversity.


This topic, a priority for many institutions, international organisations and citizens, is a central part of the "One World, One Health" concept. Its causes and its consequences involve at the same time human health, alimentation, agriculture and the environment in the broad sense.

Infectious diseases, nutrition, active principles, emerging diseases,... experts will speak on these topical issues and will end the day with a question-answer session, allowing the public to ask questions and share their impressions.


The day, organised around the triad Animal-Man-Food is intended, not only for all students and staff from our 4 partner institutions but also for a wider audience of professionals, allowing the public to do some networking and to exchange ideas. The symposium is organised as part of the 2nd-year Master’s "From Animal to Man: Analysing and Managing Health and Food Risks" course programme. For the first time, it is organised in collaboration with the international Master’s programme "Infectious diseases One Health" hosted partly by the University of Tours.

The lectures will be delivered in English. Participation is free but you must register before November the 9th via this  online form

The symposium will be held at Oniris, on the « La Chantrerie » campus from 10 a.m to 3.30 p.m.
