Periodic Report - PLANTFOODSEC (Plant and food biosecurity)

Project ID: 261752

Abstract

Agricultural bioterrorism (agroterrorism) is the deliberate introduction of an animal, plant disease or pest with the goal of generating fear, causing economic losses and undermining stability.

The 'PLANTFOODSEC' project, which was funded by the European Community (EC), aimed to build a virtual centre of competence to support plant and food biosecurity training and research in Europe, thus enhancing the preparedness and response capabilities of the sector.
