Development of STOC-FREE MODEL

The aim of WP1, which is led by ONIRIS France, is to develop a method (STOC-FREE MODEL) for the quantitative comparison of the confidence in freedom of disease in different control programmes for non-regulated diseases in the EU.

The method STOC-FREE MODEL will allow the estimation of the confidence of freedom from infection and the associated uncertainty from heterogeneous data inputs available for different epidemiological units such as animal, herd, sector, region or country. The method will be developed and evaluated using BVDV in cattle as an example disease.
