The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). In this context, many events will be organised to raise awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development.
By providing the knowledge to understand the threats and to develop the tools to address plant health challenges, research activities must hold a prominent place in modern societies. In order to give visibility to national and international research activities on plant health and to the people and organizations that carry them, the Euphresco network for phytosanitary research coordination and funding (Euphresco) and the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies of Bari (CIHEAM Bari) are pleased to launch a call for a video competition ‘Plant Health TV: Research that helps Plant Health’.
Interested scientists are invited to submit a short video (less than three minutes) related to research that is conducted on plant health. Applicants must submit the required material by the 1st of July 2020 at 11:59 pm GMT.
More information on the contest and how to participate is available here.
