Pest risk conference comes to Parma

EFSA is to host this year’s annual meeting of the International Pest Risk Research Group (IPRRG) at EFSA’s headquarters in Parma, Italy. 

There is still time to submit oral and poster presentations on all aspects of pest risk research. Pests include any species, strain or biotype of plant, animal, or pathogenic agent, injurious to plants or animals.

Presentations on advances in modelling and mapping risks, impact assessment, and communicating risks to policy-makers are particularly welcomed. The deadline for submissions is 17 June 2016.

The meeting will take place from 23-26 August 2016. For further details visit the IPRRG website.

What is the IPRRG?

The IPRRG, first convened in 2007 as the Pest Risk Mapping Workgroup, is a group of research scientists and pest risk practitioners that aims to develop enhanced pest risk modelling and mapping methods through rigorous, innovative research.
