"Providing information, tools and services to scientists, policy and farm advisers, and trainers concerned with Integrated Pest Management"
ENDURE is a major source of information and provides a platform for knowledge exchange regarding all aspects of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). It is building on the experience and knowledge amassed within the European Commission-funded ENDURE Network of Excellence (2007-2010).
ENDURE is driven by scientists and advisers from partner organisations across a wide range of European countries.
The ENDURE Network of Excellence was launched in 2007 with four-year funding under the European Commission’s 6th Framework Programme. Over the subsequent four years, the Network brought together more than 300 researchers from 18 different institutions committed to an ambitious and wide-ranging programme of activities. These activities were designed to create the Network of Excellence, tackle a multi-disciplinary research programme and ensure the results of this research reached all interested stakeholders.
The success of the Network of Excellence can be judged by the commitment of all its research and advisory partners to the current ENDURE which continues to maintain the tools and services created and offer a range of support and tools to farm advisers, the research community and policy advisers involved in the implementation of Europe’s new ‘pesticides package’.
ENDURE’s mission is to provide support to extension, policy and research across Europe to ensure the development of sustainable crop protection. To achieve this, four types of activities are being pursued:
Helping to coordinate research applied to crop protection within Europe.
Developing and connecting ENDURE research resources and making them accessible to the international research community through the ENDURE Resource Centre.
3. Scientific support to policy
Supporting the development and implementation of policies relevant to crop protection.
Supporting extension services on IPM.
