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:
- Citizen science, outreach and knowledge exchange
- Enhancing Xylella diagnostic capabilities
- Investigating insect vector biology
- Epidemiology modelling
