Project Details


The main aim of the project is to develop an integrated approach to assess the emergence threat associated with influenza D viruses’ circulation in Europe to pave the way towards development of effective strategies for diagnosis and control of the disease.
The objectives of the project, reflecting the 4 scientific workpackages, are:
- WP1: Evaluating the diversity, sensitivity and specificity of influenza D detection methods;
- WP2: Assessing the virus host range and tissue tropism, including in human;
- WP3: Assessing influenza D virus geographical distribution in Europe;
- WP4: Assessing the risk of influenza D virus in Europe: risk of transmission between countries, between species, including to humans.
