Information about the ECDC Virtual Academy
We provide access to training in the domain of Disease Prevention & Control, in order to strengthen capacity of European Union and its Member States.
How It Works
ECDC Virtual Academy is an education platform that partners with training network organisations within the EU and beyond, to offer courses online for anyone to take.
Learn on your own schedule
Our courses include video lectures, interactive quizzes, expert - and peer graded assessments, and are aimed to create communities of practice between fellow learners and trainers.
Achieve your goals
Finish your course and receive formal recognition for your accomplishment through a certificate that refers to European Core Competencies in disease prevention and control where appropriate.
Who is behind EVA?
ECDC liaises with a network of partner organisations for public health training in order to share resources to offer training in communicable disease prevention & control to public health professionals in the European Union. Our trainers are selected from expert networks such as EPIET, EUPHEM or the ECDC Disease Specific Networks, as well as from ECDC National Focal Points for Training and partner organisations such as ASPHER, MEDIPIET and TEPHINET.
Participants who follow courses in EVA are also encouraged to stay in touch with the Community of Practice after they have finished their courses; for this purpose ECDC supports the platform of FEMWIKI.
