Final Report - BEE SHOP (Bees in Europe and Sustainable Honey Production)

Project ID: 22568
Funded under: FP6-FOOD


This is the final report of the 'Bees in Europe and Sustainable Honey Production' (BEE SHOP) project. The prime goal was to reduce potential sources of honey contamination due to both foraging contaminated nectar and chemotherapy of honeybee diseases. The BEE SHOP therefore dealt with the development of biological resistance to pests and pathogens to avoid chemotherapy.

The document describes the motivation behind the project by referring to the potential problems that occur with honeybees and then analyses in detail the work performed under each work package. The results of the project deemed to be very positive. The report finally refers to dissemination strategy and relevant actions.
