European conference on Xylella fastidiosa: finding answers to a global problem: Palma de Mallorca, 13-15 November 2017

2017/21/07 - The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has opened the registration deadline to participate in the scientific conference on research carried out in the European Union (EU) for the fight against Xylella fastidiosa, which will take place in Palma de Mallorca next 13 - 15 November.

A major scientific conference on European research into Xylella fastidiosa is to be held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, from 13-15 November 2017. The conference is being organised jointly by EFSA, the University of the Balearic Islands, the Euphresco network for phytosanitary research coordination and funding, the EU Horizon 2020 projects POnTE and XF-ACTORS, and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD).

The event, whose registration deadline ends on 8 September, will provide a platform for in-depth discussion on the results of research into X. fastidiosa and its vectors, in support of on-going efforts to control the European outbreaks. As well as speakers and participants from Europe, the conference will be attended by scientific experts from other parts of the world -such as Brazil and the United States- where X. fastidiosa has been present for many years.

This Institution has highlighted that the recent detection of this bacterium in Italy, France and Spain represents an important change in the geographical distribution of this pathogen and poses a serious threat to agriculture and the environment in Europe and the Mediterranean region.
