ENDURE’s Two-Track System is an information resource open not only to ENDURE researchers but to members of the crop protection community worldwide. It offers easily searched databases providing details of the working groups of various crop protection networks, funding sources for researchers and a listing of international crop protection experts.
The Two-Track System gets its name from the fact it is a two-track 'wiki', meaning that you too can contribute to it. For more details, contact ENDURE.
Below you can find details of the kinds of information available, and instructions on how to use the Two-Track System.
The Two-Track System database contains details of all the work groups within ENDURE plus those of members of the Crop Protection Network and other networks. Thus you can find details, for example, of European Weed Research Society, EUPHRESCO and IOBC/WPRS workgroups.
Using the boxes in the left-hand column, these workgroups can be searched by organisation, by orientation (crop, pest or methods), using a keywords facility and by a free search facility whereby you can type in the name of the group for which you are searching.
The Two-Track System database currently contains details of around 140 funding sources. These include funds for training (49 are currently listed), funds for research activities (54 are currently listed) and funds for mobility (37 are currently listed).
Using the boxes in the left-hand column, you can search these funding sources by type (training, research activity and mobility) and/or by the region or country to which they apply.
Details of funding sources with approaching deadlines can also be found on the ENDURE website. Go to Funding sources for international collaboration.
The Two-Track System database also contains details of more than 100 crop protection specialists worldwide.
Using the boxes in the left-hand column, these experts can be searched by country, organisation or by name. You can also search using keywords supplied in the right-hand column, these suggested keywords include crops, pests and topics.
