Objective
The objectives of the contract resulting from the present procurement procedure are as follows: 1. identify current best modelling frameworks/techniques suitable for assessing the risk of pathogen introduction and establishment and the risk of pathogen transmission and spread 2. create an inventory of the current modelling frameworks/techniques suitable for assessing the risk of pathogen introduction and establishment and the risk of pathogen transmission and spread 3. assess the applicability of identified modelling frameworks/techniques from areas other than animal health for assessing the risks of pathogen introduction and establishment and the risk of pathogen transmission and spread 4. develop a checklist for documenting the process of selecting modelling frameworks/techniques for EFSA opinions in the area of animal health risk assessments 5. adapt applicable modelling frameworks/techniques from areas other than animal health and compare them with modelling frameworks/techniques from the animal health area via simulations.
