ANVE received the invitation to participate in the Committee of Stakeholders of the scientific research project HORIZON 2020 on Xylella fastidiosa funded by the European Commission. The project, called XF-ACTORS “Xylella Fastidiosa Active Containment Through a multidisciplinary-Oriented Research Strategy”, intends to develop a multidisciplinary program in response to the urgent need for additional prevention strategies, early detection and control of Xylella fastidiosa. The goal is to develop a comprehensive strategy for the integrated management of serious illnesses linked to the bacterium, with the intent to prevent their spread and reduce the economic, social and environmental problems. The Partnership is composed of a worldwide professional network that includes the most excellent research centers, associations and, for the Italian nurserystock industry, ANVE. In total there are 29 partners from 14 countries around the world including, in addition to those in the European Union, Taiwan, United States, Costa Rica and Brazil. The Stakeholder Committee is made up of national and international plant protection services, as European political and institutional representatives, from nursery associations and those involved in media outreach. Committee activities are crucial to the implementation of the executive work plan, to provide training and communication plans, to promote and stimulate the use of the project results, to support demonstration activities or field trials by identifying the most suitable conditions . The project, with a duration of four years, will be developed in ten work packages and sees a contribution of European financial resources amounting to 6.9 million euro. ANVE will certainly make its contribution to the necessary tests to be applied in the field as well as to make available its partnerships with international organizations with which it collaborates. The emergency Xylella finally begins to be evaluated across the board thanks to the integrated research involvement, the institutions and the productive world.
