Proposed 2019 topics for joint phytosanitary research still open for participants
The Euphresco network, composed of European phytosanitary research programme owners and managers, has prepared new joint research topics. The transnational research funding is considered most appropriate for applied research in relatively small projects of short to medium length duration - from one to three years - thus enabling rapid and customised answers for quarantine plant pests. The proposed research topics for 2019 are available with a description and details on the organizations that have expressed interest so far. Collaboration with non-Euphresco organisations (research institutes, universities, private companies and other plant health stakeholders) is encouraged. Participation is still possible.
The list with proposed research topics is available at the Euphresco website.
Euphresco is a network that consists of around seventy organisations from over fifty different countries, including The Netherlands’ National Plant Protection Organization; Food and Consumer Products Safety Authority. It has been building strong relationships between partners during the course of two ERA-NETs. After finalisation of the ERA-NET Euphresco II in 2014, the network continued in a self-sustained manner, hosted within the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO).
