ECDC Annual Work Programme 2010

Work programme

As stated in Article 14.5(d) of ECDC’s Founding Regulation, [The Management Board shall:] “adopt, before 31 January each year, the Centre’s programme of work for the coming year.” The ECDC Annual Work Programme 2010 is based on ECDC’s Strategic Multi-annual Programme (SMP) 2007-2013. The activities to be developed in 2010 are therefore clearly and individually linked to the long-term strategies of ECDC. Main priorities of the 2010 Work Programme
According to the ECDC Strategic Multi-annual Programme, from 2010 onwards, ECDC’s main focus should shift from the consolidation of its Public Health Functions (surveillance, scientific advice, preparedness and response, health communication) to a priority given to Disease Specific work. This process is supported in parallel with the presentation of the long-term strategies for the Disease Specific Programmes to the Management Board. Partnerships, including External Relations and Country Relations and Coordination, will continue to work on further improving ECDC’s overall cooperation with the EU institutions, Member States, other public health partners and external partners. Special emphasis will be placed on improving the internal coordination of country work within ECDC. The further building up of sustainable links and collaboration with the Competent Bodies will aim to ensure full synergy in the work

Executive summary

As in the previous years, ECDC‟s work for 2010 is planned on a yearly basis in an Annual Work Programme with a medium term “rolling time horizon”, which is based on the Strategic Multiannual Programme (2007-2013). In this way, ECDC‟s day-to-day work is linked to its longerterm goals and official mandate.

This document is based on the priority list for scientific advice prepared by ECDC in January/February with input from Competent Bodies for scientific advice, the Advisory Forum (AF) and ECDC Units and Disease Specific Programmes, and scoring from the Member States. A list of “ECDC 2010 Work Programme priorities” has also been reviewed by the Management Board in June 2010 and the Advisory Forum in October 2009. In order to ensure full synergy, the document has also been widely discussed with the European Commission in October.

Main priorities of the 2010 Work Programme:

  • According to the Strategic Multi-annual Programme, from 2010 onwards, ECDC‟s main focus should shift from the consolidation of its Public Health Functions (surveillance, scientific advice, preparedness and response, health communication) to a priority given to Diseases Specific work. This process is supported in parallel with the presentation of the long term strategies for the Disease specific programmes to the Management Board.
  • Building Partnerships will remain a high priority in order to further improve ECDC‟s overall cooperation with the EU institutions, Member States, other public health partners and external partners. The further building up of sustainable links and collaboration with the Competent Bodies will aim to ensure full synergy in the work.
