ABOUT - Activities

EMPHASIS adopts the internationally agreed "three-stage hierarchical approach" advocated by the Convention on Biological Diversity, with support measures based on the identification of challenges and prioritisation of objectives, namely: prevention, early detection and eradication, and control and long-term containment.

The project activities are structured into six work packages (WPs):

WP1 - PLANT HEALTH CHALLENGES AND EVALUATION.
To establish a learning platform to obtain inputs from stakeholders making pest management decisions based on their needs, experiences and expectations.

WP2 - PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS FOR SURVEILLANCE AND MONITORING.
To develop targeted methods that can be used to improve the monitoring of pathogens and pests; to develop non-targeted methods for detection and surveillance of the unknown.

WP3 - PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS FOR PROTECTION, MANAGEMENT AND ERADICATION.
To identify new macro- and microbiological agents; to find new resistance sources to improve durability of resistant plant varieties; to improve current cultural practice; to increase environmental resistance to pest population; and to improve chemical control sustainability.

WP4 - OPEN-ENDED MULTI-ACTOR ACTIVITIES: ON-FARM VALIDATION AND PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT.
To develop a shared understanding among researchers and to translate strategic research results into practical IPM solutions.

WP5 - DISSEMINATION AND TRAINING.
To ensure the effective and efficient spread of EMPHASIS outcomes to a wider public and to build up awareness and compliance with practical solutions for native and alien pests affecting plants.

WP6 - MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING.
To coordinate, monitor and structure research activities by facilitating cooperation within and among the WPs, thus ensuring dynamic and efficient governance of the project.
