ANSES Scientific Conferences : PNREST and "Plan Cancer"

54 Quai de la Rapée, 75012 Paris
Public : oui
Maison de la RATP
For the first time, ANSES's next Scientific Conferences, presenting work conducted as part of the National Research Programme for Environmental and Occupational Health (PNR EST), will be held in partnership with the National Cancer Institute (INCa) and the Multi-Agency Thematic Institute for Cancer (ITMO Cancer) of the French National Alliance for Life Sciences and Health (Aviesan). Cancer is a major public health issue: in metropolitan France in 2017 there were an estimated 400,000 new cases of cancer (incidence), some of which were associated with exposure to factors related to the general or occupational environment. This context led ANSES and ITMO Cancer to make this topic one of the priorities of the PNR EST, while INCa is funding research projects on other risk factors such as genetic predisposition, the development of innovative screening tools, patient care, etc. The advances made in this field and the results obtained by around fifteen research projects will be presented at the Scientific Conferences on 2 October 2018.

Symposium: Preventing and curing infectious diseases according to the One Health concept

10 Rue des Minimes, 37000 Tours
Public : oui
Lycée Descartes à Tours
ANSES is partnering with INRA to organise a symposium entitled "Preventing and curing infectious diseases according to the One Health concept", which will be held at the Lycée Descartes in Tours on 21 June 2018. This event aims to bring together all the players in human, animal and environmental health to develop a debate around the "One Health" vision with a focus on three questions: what strategies, vaccine solutions and alternative methods can help limit the use of drug inputs? what innovative tools and schemes can help with the early detection of sick animals (or reservoirs of infectious agents), in order to prevent the emergence and spread of disease within a herd (management of the herd and of environmental reservoirs of pathogens, regional surveillance)? what are the prospects for R&D and what opportunities for innovation may arise from these novel approaches? > Read the event programme This One Health approach, which recognises that human health is highly dependent on the health of animals and the environment, is at the heart of ANSES's work. In line with this, since 1 January 2018, the Agency has been in charge of coordinating the European Joint Programme (EJP) on One Health , which brings together more than 40 partners from 19 Member States. Several ANSES scientists will be sharing their experiences and work during this symposium: opening presentation by Pascal Boireau, Director of the ANSES Laboratory for Animal Health; presentation on " Understanding and managing bovine tuberculosis: from a genome study of Mb strains circulating in France to participatory surveillance in wildlife " by Maria Laura Boschiroli, from the ANSES Laboratory for Animal Health and Franck Biet from INRA; presentation on " The EJP on One Health: prospects for R&D " by Christophe Cordevant, ANSES.

Inauguration of a new wing of the ANSES Laboratory for Food Safety at the Boulogne-sur-Mer site

Public : non
Laboratoire de sécurité des aliments à Boulogne-sur-Mer
Centrally located in the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer, this branch of the ANSES Laboratory for Food Safety – which specialises in fishery and aquaculture products – is expanding! The new extension, co-funded with the support of the Hauts-de-France Regional Council and the Boulogne-sur-Mer Urban Community , will be able to accommodate scientists from the Biochemistry of Aquatic Products Unit of the University of the Littoral-Côte d’Opale , a team conducting joint research with the Charles Viollette Regional Institute for Agrifood and Biotechnology Research . With a team of more than 20 people working on the quality and hygiene of fishery and aquaculture products, the Boulogne-sur-Mer site of the ANSES Laboratory for Food Safety develops methods for detecting, characterising and quantifying pathogens (micro-organisms and parasites) and chemical contaminants (biogenic amines, microplastics, etc.) found in fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Capitalising on these multiple links with the universities and research institutions present in Hauts-de-France, the new building will enable the teams to continue their mission to safeguard health and coordinate the research community in the area of aquaculture and fishing.

ANSES will participate in the 2018 International ISESSAH-InnovSur convention which will be held in Montpellier from 14 to 18 May, and we are actively involved in the organisation of the 2018 Innovsur forum from 16 to 18 May. The aim of this forum is to review the needs of the next generation of human, animal and plant health surveillance. Monitoring the evolution of pathogens, detecting the emergence of new infectious agents in the country, and conducting epidemiological surveillance are essential links for preventing health risks. This international forum will be an opportunity for participants to share their experiences in these areas and to put the various surveillance systems into perspective with regard to the socio-economic, political and cultural contexts of different countries. Presentations by ANSES experts: wednesday 17 May: Pascal Hendrikx will co-chair session 3 on Surveillance design and big data; wednesday 17 May at 9:40 am: Carole Sala – “Field implementation of syndromic surveillance in animal health: feedback on the five-year French pilot experience with OMAR”; wednesday 17 May at 10:40 am: Jean-Philippe Amat – “Integrating surveillance systems within an animal production industry: an approach based on a combination of evaluation methods and a participatory stakeholder workshop”. Pascal Hendrikx is the Scientific director of ANSES’s cross-disciplinary Epidemiology and epidemiological surveillance unit, and also a member of the 2018 InnovSur forum’s Scientific committee.

You can be a specialist in animal health, plant health and/or food safety: le goûter d’anniversaire (“The birthday party”) - investigate with our experts to find the cause of food poisoning in guests at a birthday party; le mystère du champ maudit (“The mystery of the ill-fated field”) - discover what scientists must do to identify the disease responsible for the sudden death of a cow; aui sauvera Communeville ? (“Who will save Communeville?”) - take part in an investigation to find out why a town’s inhabitants are complaining of allergies and what can be done to prevent this, using a biological control solution; les agents de biocontrôle (“Biocontrol agents”) - A fun workshop for young and old alike to help understand the different types of agents involved in biological control. Other events Join us under the ANSES tree, for two wonderful storytelling sessions every 15 minutes (in French): au pays des bulles (“In the land of bubbles”) is intended to teach young children about the importance of physical exercise to stay healthy; entre deux eaux (“Mid-water”) will get them to think about how to use water responsibly. There will also be quizzes to test your knowledge and that of your friends and family, films about ANSES and the work conducted there, etc. A conference will be held in thearea devoted to professionals ( Ateliers pratiques ) - in French Saturday 24 February from 2:30 to 3:00 pm: L’Anses au service d’une alimentation saine et durable (“ANSES: working for a healthy and sustainable diet”) Hall 4 - Aisle D - Stand no. 097
International conference on “The impact of global change on the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe”

International conference on “The impact of global change on the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe”

189 rue de Bercy - Paris 12e
Public : oui
Maison de la RATP
Today, the notion of global change does not only apply to the global warming caused by human activities. It now also includes other planet-wide phenomena caused by societal changes and transformations such as the intensification of trade and modifications in production and consumer systems. The circulation of plant material, regardless of the mode of transport, promotes the circulation of pathogens. France, as a geographical crossroads, is faced with the establishment of plant pests and diseases from neighbouring countries, especially those to the north, but also those from overseas, which find climatic conditions in metropolitan France favourable to their rapid development. The same phenomenon can now be seen on the European level with, for example, the establishment in the Mediterranean of tropical diseases. The evolution of public policy with regard to agriculture, in France as well as in other European countries, incites interrogation as to the role played by human intervention and that of a compromise with natural processes. It tends to favour an agro-ecological approach, with the reduction of chemical inputs in agricultural and non-agricultural zones. These approaches also have a potential impact on the emergence of diseases and pests, as well as on the measures used to control them. In this context, the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES), in collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO), are organising a conference on 23-24 April 2018 which will be held at the Maison de la RATP in Paris on “The impact of global change on the emergence of plant diseases and pests in Europe”. This conference aims to bring together researchers, public decision-makers and stakeholders in the environmental and agricultural production fields, to take stock of the subject and bring forth new ideas on the assessment and management of phytosanitary risks in response to the challenges of the coming years. Interpretation services will be provided. The participation of this conference is free of charge. Registration online are closed. To follow us: #2018GlobalChange Partners
H2020 One Health EJP Kick-off meeting

H2020 One Health EJP Kick-off meeting

14 rue Pierre et Marie Curie 94 700 Maisons-Alfort
Public : non
ANSES
The One Health EJP is a EU cofunded project under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The European Joint Programme (EJP) on "One Health", coordinated by ANSES with the participation of 41 partners from 19 Member and Associated States, was approved by the European Commission and starts on 1 January 2018 for a period of 5 years. The international "One Health" concept recognises that human health is highly dependent on animal health and the environment, and that the foodborne contaminants in particular that affect human health, animal health and the environment are closely intertwined. The European Joint Programme (EJP) on "One Health" is implemented in this context. The One Health EJP will help strengthen cooperation between its partners. These research centres, most of which have reference mandates on foodborne zoonoses, form an organised network and represent an integrated research community whose aim is to promote scientific progress in the areas of foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and emerging risks. The programme has been built upon the principle of co-funding from the participating institutes and the European Union ("Horizon 2020", the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation). Costing amount €90 million, 50% of its funding will come from the European Commission. While ensuring effective interaction with the other major projects funded by the European Commission, the One Health EJP will generate scientific data to be used as input for the analysis of health risks and their assessment by national and European agencies. One of the network's priorities will be to monitor the proper dissemination of information within the scientific community. The objective of the Kick-off meeting is therefore to disseminate political messages on the importance of this One Health initiative to the EJP community as well as concretely introduce organisation and functioning of the One health EJP and scientific activities which will be implemented.
