HOMED research presented to EC Working Group on Plant Health Surveillance
Results of the HOMED project were presented at the Innovative approaches for territorial surveillance event organised by the Working Group on Plant Health Surveillance, co-organized by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) and the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE). The event was held on 18 March, where 58 participants, two official representatives from each EU country and EC agents, gathered to discuss innovative approaches for territorial surveillance.
HOMED project coordinator Prof. Herve Jactel from INRA presented HOMED research results and technologies. His presentation highlighted HOMED results about innovative approaches for the detection and surveillance of invasive forest pests and pathogens in European forests. The participants were interested in HOMED technologies such as multilure traps, LAMP devices and light traps in containers, with a lively follow-up discussion about technology transfer and commercial availability.
