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.

Funded by UK Research and Innovation through the Strategic Priorities Fund, by a grant from BBSRC, with support from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Scottish Government.
