International workshop Plant Health Research Priorities for the Mediterranean Region | May 12th 2021

03 May 2021

A joint CIHEAM Bari-Euphresco on-line workshop will be organized on the morning of May 12, 2021.

The event will be an opportunity for high level officials from organisations involved in policy making, research funding and research implementation in the Mediterranean region to meet, exchange views, discuss and identify common plant health research priorities. 

During the first part of the meeting, the results of a survey on the plant health research priorities will be presented (Compendium on the plant health research priorities for the Mediterranean region available here: https://zenodo.org/record/4107123#.YIwZ-7UzY2w). Then, four working groups of Countries from Balkan-Mediterranean, Eastern Mediterranean, Maghreb, and Western Mediterranean will be organised to allow neighbouring Countries to informally discuss on their plant health research programmes for the next 2-5 years and their research priorities for which international collaboration is sought.

The event is part of the celebrations of the International year of Plant Health IYPH2020.
