Eurosurveillance was founded in 1995 when a first pilot issue was published. The journal was jointly funded until March 2007 by the European Commission, the Institut de Veille Sanitaire (InVS, now Santé publique France) in Paris, France and the Health Protection Agency (HPA, now Public Health England) in London, United Kingdom. Eurosurveillance is a registered trademark of the European Union (EU).
Since March 2007, Eurosurveillance has been published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) in Stockholm, Sweden. ECDC funds this journal with its own resources; Eurosurveillance does not have any other sources of funding.
The publisher grants editorial independence to the editorial team. The views expressed in the journal are those of the authors and may not necessarily comply with ECDC policy. As a non-profit publication, the journal has no financial conflicts of interest.
