The research project receives funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under Grant Agreement n° 261752


Between 2005 and 2007, a consortium of European researchers implemented the EU-funded project “Crop and Food Biosecurity and Provision of the Means to Anticipate and Tackle Crop Bio-terrorism”.
The project focused on the risks posed to European agriculture and forestry by the deliberate introduction of plant pathogens.

The results obtained provided input to other projects, including the NATO-funded “Tools for Crop Biosecurity”; the NATO programme “Security through Science”; and the EU-funded Asia Link project “Tackling Biosecurity between Europe and Asia: Innovative Detection, Containment and Control Tools of Invasive Alien Species Potentially Affecting Food Production and Trade (BIOSEC)”.
