Adopting a holistic and multi-actor approach, HOMED aims to develop a full panel of scientific knowledge and practical solutions for the management of emerging native and non-native PnPs threatening European forests.
Within HOMED, forest health will be considered broadly, including trees not only in forests, but also in nurseries, urban and rural areas owing to the key epidemiological role of these components. Innovation will be central, as the new tools for PnPs management will benefit from cutting-edge technology in biology, electronics, mathematics and physics.
