We have just launched a general survey of stakeholders that are potentially affected by the technologies developed by the EMPHASIS project.
The aim of the survey is to understand and investigate further the current needs of end users; in particular, in terms of the key pest threats, solutions applied to address them and likely shortcomings.
This survey is addressed primarily to professional organisations in the agricultural, horticultural and forestry sectors, public authorities, and other relevant stakeholders (e.g. public green /landscape managers) and relevant NGOs.
Gaining an in-depth understanding of the potential demand for these technologies throughout the EU is of key importance to the study.
The questionnaire for this survey can be completed, by 20 May 2016, here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/X9FY6CN
We would be grateful if you could circulate further the link to this survey to your member organisations, and encourage them to respond.
You may also want to circulate this link further to any other networks or organisations that may be interested in this project.
The EMPHASIS project team is available for any further questions you may have on this survey.
We take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your cooperation in this project.

This short survey aims to learn more about how the practical solutions for pest surveillance, control and eradication developed under the EMPHASIS project address the needs of potential end-users.
The outbreaks of emergent plant diseases or insect pests are significantly increasing at an alarming rate due to climate change, global trade and other reasons. These plant health emergent problems are serious threats to global food security in this 21st century.
