Eye opener stories

Watch Esther Schelling, Constanze Pfeiffer and Karin Hediger sharing stories that show the benefits of crossing narrow disciplinary boundaries.

It is not only important that scientists, stakeholders and different organisations collaborate. It is equally essential to seek an interdisciplinary approach.

With different disciplines involved, you will become more effective than you are when you work on your own. This is not only true for One Health but for the vast range of research.

Watch Esther Schelling, a trained veterinarian, Constanze Pfeiffer, a medical anthropologist, and Karin Hediger, a psychologist, talking about collaborations and profits for a One Health approach.
