A four-year project with almost EUR 7 million in EU funding, and a consortium of 22 partners including research institutes, associations, small and medium-sized private companies from ten different countries.
These are some of the key details related to EMPHASIS (Effective Management of Pests and Harmful Alien Species: Integrated Solutions), a project funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (2014-2020) (Grant Agreement n. 634179).
EMPHASIS will fight native and alien pest threats (insect pests, pathogens, weeds) that damage natural ecosystems services and farming systems. This will ensure a European food security system that protects biodiversity and ecosystems services, while developing integrated mechanisms of response measures to predict, prevent and protect agriculture and forestry systems.
EMPHASIS organizes this workshop to learn more from experts and stakeholders about how to predict, prevent and protect EU agricultural and forestry sector.
The event is organized in the context of the Horizon 2020 project EMPHASIS, which covers the topic of plant health and prevention of spreading of new pathogens.
We have just launched a general survey of stakeholders that are potentially affected by the technologies developed by the EMPHASIS project.
