4th European Conference on Xylella fastidiosa
The 4th European Conference on Xylella fastidiosa will be held in Lyon (France) on 20 August 2023, as a Satellite event of the International Congress on Plant Pathology (ICPP2023).
The 4th European conference on Xylella fastidiosa is being organised by EFSA with the active contribution of the major EU and transnational research initiatives tackling X. fastidiosa – BeXyl, BIOVEXO, ERC MultiX and EUPHRESCO. The conference will be chaired by Blanca B. Landa, who is coordinating the EU funded project BeXyl (Beyond Xylella), and Giuseppe Stancanelli, who leads the Plant Health Risk Assessment team at EFSA. The Scientific Committee of this conference includes scientists from all the partner organisations and external reviewers.
The presentations and discussions will take stock of the results from research that has taken place since X. fastidiosa was first detected in Europe in 2013. During this last decade, two major research projects funded by the European Union have filled knowledge gaps on the distinctive elements of the outbreaks, consolidated a resilient network for monitoring and testing, and achieved results that have supported and influenced the activities of researchers, stakeholders and policy makers.
