Joint EFSA-EPPO Workshop on ‘Data collection and information sharing in plant health’ (Parma, IT, 2014-04-01/03)

A joint EFSA-EPPO Workshop will be organized on 2014-04-01/03 at the EFSA headquarters in Parma on ‘Data collection and information sharing in plant health’. Data collection is a fundamental element for an evidence based risk assessment and for decision making in plant health. Much risk assessment uncertainty is due to lack of data or to unavailable data. The main objective of this Workshop is to share experiences and reflect on how to collect, store and disseminate plant health information at national, regional and global level. This Workshop is addressed to NPPOs, national and international risk assessment bodies, international organizations, research institutes, agriculture extension services, stakeholders (e.g. growers’, manufacturers’ and trade associations), or any other parties interested in information aspects of plant health.
