EDITORIAL

Since our last Newsletter edition in February 2017 the political landscape has been changing in France and Germany, and it was our pleasure to present the Centre Virchow-Villermé to the new French Ambassador in Berlin, Mrs. Anne-Marie Descôtes. As in previous years, the French Embassy in Berlin invited the CVV in 2017 to hold a French-German Global Health conference on their premises. In 2017, we also continued expanding our digital activities with the production of new MOOCs,  and went on with our research projects on diverse topics such as climate and health or nutrition.
