Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, Seropédica, Brazil

Brazil University winner 2018 1

The team from Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro organised a well-attended university-wide event that encouraged professionals from distinct areas to adopt One Health approaches in their professional activities and in their research projects.

The main objective was to organize an event that would build bridges and link different disciplines that either directly or indirectly impact human, animal, and environmental health. By breaking the boundaries that divide the different undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the UFRRJ, they would join forces and share knowledge and research in order to face many of the current and future challenges in their respective fields.
