Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe)

Viale dell'università 10, Padova, Italy


The OIE Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology, Training and Control of Emerging Avian Diseases (PARENT INSTITUTE) has been established in 2007 with the mandate of developing epidemiological training and research activities on emerging avian diseases made available to OIE policies and projects. Since its foundation it enabled the development of several activities. Here is a list of the more relevant:

  • development of spatial statistical analyses and spatial models integrated with GIS applications. In this capacity the PARENT INSTITUTE has participated to different EU international research projects, of the 6th (Healthy Poultry, Flu Test, Epizone) and 7th (Discontools) EU framework programs,
  • contribution to the last phase of an OIE cooperation project for improving the Salmonella diagnostic and disease management capacity of the Central Vietnam Veterinary Institute, in collaboration with the OIE Reference Laboratory for Animal Salmonellosis at IZSVe. Active collaboration with the OIE Collaborating Centre for Diseases at the Human/ Animal Interface at the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie, implementing surveys and researches on Influenza and WND viruses,
  • training courses for the OIE and FAO on GIS and GPS receiver used in epidemiology and for (i) controlling emerging avian diseases. (held either in Italy, Bosnia Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia, etc.), (ii) to provide epidemiological statistics training for veterinary service staff of Republic of Cyprus,
  • assessing of other countries’ avian influenza (AI) surveillance systems and control measures (South Africa) to assess the Avian Influenza control measures,
  • technical assistance on identification and traceability systems on the application of epidemiological methods and GIS tools for AI control and eradication,
  • implementation of GIS tools and epidemiological spatial analysis to HPAI / LPAI epidemics with the objective of establishing both containment and free zones,
  • organisation of workshops and conferences in partnership with FAO and OIE,
  • dissemination technical information and scientific data relevant to and consistent with the Parent Institute mandate on peer-reviewed journals
