Looking to be partner in a consortium by preventing and controlling emergence of animal and plant diseases
Topic 1.2.1 RIA Conserving water and soil in Mediterranean dry-farming, smallholder agriculture (Section 1). Topic 1.2.2 IA Sustainability and competitiveness of Mediterranean greenhouse and intensive horticulture (Section 1). Topic 2.2.1 RIA Small scale farming systems innovation (Section 2). Topic 2.2.2 RIA Use and management of biodiversity as a major lever of sustainability in farming systems (Section 2).
We would like to join a project as partner within PRIMA program topics regarding biotechnology, animal microbiomes as well as prevention and control of animal disease emergence and health of farmers. The environmental changes and ecological disturbances, due to natural phenomena and human activities, can exert a strong influence on emerging diseases. Thus, it is important to implement preventive measures that reduce the risk of pathogens transmission to the human population especially farmers, livestock and pets. We are ready to conduct lab experiments, bioinformatic / phylogenetic analysis and prevention activities to the attention of farmers and animal owners.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Facultad de Biologia (Universitat de Barcelona)
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
