Editorial board

The Eurosurveillance editorial board is composed of 16 associate editors and 37 editorial advisors.

The associate editors are internationally renowned and active experts in the fields of public health and clinical medicine with expertise in infectious diseases, laboratory research and diagnostics and mathematical modelling.

Our editorial advisors serve as contacts in the 27 European Union (EU) countries as well as Norway, Iceland and the EU candidate and potential candidate countries. They also help us maintain close ties to our authors and reviewers. The editorial board members meet in person once a year and provide ongoing advice between meetings. Board members serve for a period of three years which can be extended.
