3rd European Conference on Xylella fastidiosa and XF-ACTORS final meeting
The 3rd European Conference on Xylella fastidiosa and the final meeting of the XF-ACTORS project will be held online from 26 April to 30 April 2021.
The meeting of XF-ACTORS, the EU Horizon 2020 research project devoted to this plant pathogenic bacterium, will precede the conference. The 3rd European conference on Xylella fastidiosa is organised by EFSA and XF-ACTORS with the active contribution of the major EU and transnational research initiatives tackling X. fastidiosa – BIOVEXO, CURE-XF, ERC MultiX, EUPHRESCO, EUROXANTH, and Life Resilience.
The presentations and discussions will take stock of the results from research that has taken place since X. fastidiosa was first detected in Europe in 2013. During this period, scientists have filled knowledge gaps on the distinctive elements of the outbreaks in the EU, consolidated a resilient network for monitoring and testing, and achieved results that have supported and influenced the activities of researchers, stakeholders and policy makers
