Future Priorities For Insect Vector Research And Control - InfraVec2 Survey

Infravec2 Community Survey

Dear Colleagues,

The Infravec2 EU funded Consortium* wishes the Vector Biology Research Community a happy New Year and requests your input to help prepare a potential new Advanced Community research infrastructure project under the EU Horizon Europe framework, beginning in 2022. Please complete a short survey about your research needs by the end of the month by clicking the following link https://tinyurl.com/InfravecCommunitySurvey.

The primary purpose of Infravec2 is to provide access to products and services from the network of consortium facilities, funded by the EU and without charge to the worldwide vector research community. Access to these specialized resources enables vector researchers and companies to carry out experiments beyond their current capacities. Products and services can be requested from the Infravec2 online catalogue. In addition, Infravec2 engages in development of new tools and technologies for vector research and control.

This survey proposes possible new products and services, as well as strategic needs and gaps in vector biology and control. We would like to solicit feedback from the vector biology community. Your particular needs and opinions will have strong impact on how the project will be structured, as this integrated research infrastructure needs to be tightly tailored to, and inspired by real community needs. Please, take a few minutes to fill in a short questionnaire (<15 minutes) to help us mobilize necessary resources for the future of our community. 

Please feel free to forward this email to relevant colleagues. We welcome responses from disease vector researchers and companies worldwide, who are all eligible to request products and services from Infravec2. All individual replies and identity information will be kept confidential. Questions can be addressed via email to info@infravec2.eu.
Please complete this survey as soon as you can. The survey will close 21 February 2020.

Thank you for your contribution.


The Infravec2 Consortium
