Pest Management Centre to be Launched in Brussels

11 October 2013

BELGIUM - The Harper Adams Centre for Integrated Pest Management (CIPM) is to be officially launched at a special networking event in Brussels on November 27.

The CIPM has a multidisciplinary team addressing UK and global issues in agricultural, forestry and horticultural crop protection.

Active research interests of the centre include entomology, chemical ecology, pest monitoring, application technology, nematology, pesticide science, plant pathology and weed science.

Researchers from across the EU are being invited to the event, which aims to raise the profile of the university’s research and expertise.

Professor Peter Kettlewell, Research Coordinator, said: “The purpose of the event is to not only launch the CIPM, but to share the most up-to-date information on progress and future developments within the field of sustainable pesticide use.

“We hope that researchers will find the event a useful networking exercise for developing collaborations for the forthcoming Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and innovation, as well as use it to share scientific excellence on the topic.”

The CIPM aims to work with practitioners, policymakers and the research community to undertake research in all areas of crop protection; provide advice and training; provide information to crop protection resources; and liaise with other centres and organisations.
