EAG VII includes academic experts in anthrozoology (human-animal relations), sociology, psychology, veterinary medicine and animal welfare. Knowledge gained during the first year of activities from all the other EAGs is crucial for the EAG VII research activity. On the other hand, EAG VII (and EAG I) guarantees the implementation of targeted actions that contribute to reduce the risk of infectious disease outbreaks in humans and food animals associated with keeping companion animals. Ongoing ethical issues, arising from any actions have adequate attention on the agenda of the meetings of EAG VII.
