​The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is an agency of the European Union whose mission is to identify, assess and communicate current and emerging threats to human health posed by infectious diseases. The core activities of ECDC include surveillance and early warning; collection, evaluation and dissemination of relevant scientific and technical data; provision of scientific opinions and assistance, including training. ECDC is the lead behind the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) and the EU Public Health Microbiology training programme (EUPHEM), and the main sponsor of ESCAIDE.

The European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) provides training and practical experience in intervention epidemiology at the national centres for surveillance and control of communicable diseases in the European Union (EU). It is aimed at EU medical practitioners, public health nurses, microbiologists, veterinarians and other health professionals with previous experience in public health and keen interest in epidemiology.
​The EPIET Alumni Network (EAN) was created to help develop and maintain a network of European public health epidemiologists that have participated in the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) or other European Field Epidemiology Training Programmes (FETP).
Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a professional network of 55 field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) around the world. TEPHINET aims to strengthen international public health capacity by training field epidemiologists through an applied apprenticeship program.
