One Health Certificate
Due to the localization of zoonoses research at the interface of different scientific fields, this research field puts special demands on young scientists. The One Health Certificate of the National Research Platform for Zoonoses is intended to support the interdisciplinary education of PhD students in zoonoses research and to promote the widest possible qualification for further work in this field. Furthermore, the One Health Certificate supports the further expansion of the zoonoses research community.
Obtaining the One Health Certificate is obligatory for all doctoral students supported by interdisciplinary doctoral projects of the Zoonoses Platform. In addition, however, all other members of the Zoonoses Platform can also acquire the One Health Certificate within the framework of a doctoral thesis if the thesis deals with an interdisciplinary research topic in the field of zoonoses. The exact requirements for obtaining the certificate can be found in the guidelines (Leitfaden). In addition to confirmed participation in selected events, membership in the Zoonoses Platform, a successful doctorate (magna or better) and active participation in the community, the consent of the supervisor (Einwilligung) of the doctoral thesis is mandatory.
The necessary documents for obtaining the certificate can be submitted in advance of the doctoral defence or together with the doctoral certificate. It is sufficient to send copies of the original documents by regular mail to the Greifswald office or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should there be any questions regarding the recognition of certain event participations or other questions in connection with the One Health Certificate, please feel free to contact the Greifswald office at any time.
