Final Workshop of the EU project REPHRAME (Madrid, 2014-09-30/10-02)

The EU FP7 project REPHRAME (Development of improved method for detection, control and eradication of pine wood nematode in support of EU Plant Health policy) will be completed at the end of November 2014. A final Workshop will take place in Madrid on 2014-09-30/10-02 to present the outcomes of the project. It will also include practical sessions at the CSIC laboratory in Madrid and a field trip (Santi Espiritus in Spain, Coimbra in Portugal).

The REPHRAME Workshop is addressed to plant health practitioners, forest managers, timber trade representatives and any stakeholders involved in the practical management of survey and containment of the pine wood nematode (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus). The Workshop will provide information and practical methodologies that can be used in the development of management strategies and contingency planning.

Registration fee will be around 120 euros (depending on numbers of participants).
