The main aim of Aedes Invasive Mosquito (AIM) COST Action is to establish a transboundary network of partners and institutions across Europe to cost effectively address the management of the risk of introduction and spread of Exotic Invasive Aedes Mosquito Borne Viruses (EIAMBVs).
The report summarises the findings of a questionnaire based survey designed to find out 1) what monitoring, surveillance and control activities for AIM species are happening in Europe and its neighbours; 2) who is responsible for funding, planning and implementing these activities and at what geographical scale; 3) what are the perceived constraints and gaps; 4) what guidelines are used and how they might be improved; and 5) what role citizen science plays in these activities.

STSMs are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between COST Action Participants. STSMs should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time allowing the Grantees to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions/organisations.
We are happy to announce the second STSM call for this grant period (GP3).
This time the grant budget is 15,000€ and can be used until April 15th.
