Evaluating and controlling the risk of African swine fever in the EU
The new strategies and the tools developed within this project will be transferred to African partners, and other interested countries, and established in these countries through local training/workshops and technology transfer.
This EC-funded project was initiated on January 2008 for 3 years. The EU consortium examines the epidemiology (risk factors), pathogenesis, host viral interactions, vaccine development and novel diagnostic procedures. A total of ten institutes across EU-member states actively participate in this research project, focusing on the development and validation of sensitive diagnostic techniques, including pen-side test.
