International activities

The Robert Koch Institute is involved in many different ways on the European and international level, for instance in committee work of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO); through reference laboratories of the WHO; in connection with outbreak investigations and many research co-operations. This ensures the technical exchange of contents and methodologies in respect of knowledge as well as the development of co-operations and networks. Moreover, synergies can be tapped and the efficiency can be increased through international co-operation.
