A critical component of WAB-Net is to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and skills among its members, thereby increasing the scientific capacity of researchers and institutions throughout the Western Asia region.

As part of our network’s ‘Bats and Coronaviruses’ project, we aim to advance scientific knowledge and capacity around transboundary zoonotic disease emergence and bat conservation in Western Asia.
