Objective

The Community Plant Health Regime (CPHR) aims to prevent the introduction, establishment and spread of regulated and quarantine plant pests. These pests pose increasing risks to European agriculture, horticulture, forestry and the environment. This is due to increased globalisation of trade (volume and diversity), but is exacerbated by climate change and EU expansion (increased pathways). In comparison, resources for national plant health inspection services, science programmes and research a...

The Community Plant Health Regime (CPHR) aims to prevent the introduction, establishment and spread of regulated and quarantine plant pests. These pests pose increasing risks to European agriculture, horticulture, forestry and the environment. This is due to increased globalisation of trade (volume and diversity), but is exacerbated by climate change and EU expansion (increased pathways). In comparison, resources for national plant health inspection services, science programmes and research are declining. For this reason, the EUPHRESCO Phytosanitary ERA-NET was established in 2006, with the full support of the EU Council Working Party of Chief Officers of Plant Health Services.
It aimed to better coordinate national, transnational and EU-funded research in direct support of the CPHR (EU policy, inspection services and science capability). The EUPHRESCO-I Project ended in 2010; this new EUPHRESCO-II project will deepen and enlarge the previously successful cooperation between research programmes.
EUPHRESCO-II will:
• Strengthen the basis for, and result in, a self-sustainable, long-term, durable network;
• Deepen the cooperation through continued transnational research that optimises limited resources, supports other plant health initiatives and coordination mechanisms, and further develops a culture of collaboration;
• Deepen the cooperation by improving processes and tools and reducing barriers;
• Enlarging the network (31 partners, plus 14 observers) to increase its critical mass, address more regional or sector-based (e.g. forestry plant health) issues and increase opportunities for international cooperation with non-European countries that are either the source of quarantine pests or share similar pest problems.

Overall, EUPHRESCO II will enhance the European Research Area that supports the CPHR. It will directly support EU policy, operations and science capability by providing rapid and customised answers to challenges caused by quarantine plant pests.

Mapping

EUPHRESCO-I undertook a comprehensive mapping and analysis, available from the EUPHRESCO website. There is no systematic mapping and analysis undertaken in EUPHRESCO-II, other than annual updating of national research programme’s funding levels and research projects (current and planned). The latter is specifically intended to help inform the annual rounds of topic identification within EUPHRESCO-II, from which transnational research projects emerge. EUPHRESCO-II aims to undertake three...

EUPHRESCO-II aims to undertake three annual rounds of topic identification. These have been completed for 2011 and 2012.
