A training was organised under the EFSA Pre-Accession project 2015-2017, financed by the European Commission (EC) through Multi-beneficiary programme “Preparatory measures for the participation of IPA beneficiaries in EU Agencies”. The overall objective of the programme is to support preparatory measures with Pre-Accession countries in view of their future participation in European Union (EU) Agencies before and upon membership. The support aims as well at knowledge transfer and capacity building in the area of expertise of the EU Agencies. The new EFSA Pre-Accession project runs until the end of November 2017 and one of the main objectives is to facilitate data collection in the Pre-Accession countries and reporting to EFSA. EFSA organised a dedicated training to enable the countries to get familiar with the requirements of the data collection, reporting tools and reporting system for zoonoses, zoonotic agents, animal population, disease status, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and food-borne outbreaks (FBOs). This event report summarises the background and rational for the training organisation, structure and main outcomes.
