BRIGIT -  Surveillance and response capacity for Xylella fastidiosa

A consortium of 12 organisations across entomology, plant pathology, ecology, epidemiology, genomics, molecular biology and social sciences.

The BRIGIT project builds the UK’s capability to prevent establishment of vector-borne plant pathogens and to increase our preparedness to respond should they be introduced.

The project has four areas of activity:

  1.  Citizen science, outreach and knowledge exchange
  2.  Enhancing Xylella diagnostic capabilities
  3.  Investigating insect vector biology
  4.  Epidemiology modelling
