Field assessment of Quality in Control Measures Against Aedes Invasive Mosquitoes TRAINING SCHOOL
Location: Valencia, SPAIN
Date: 13-24 September 2021
The Training School "Field assessment of Quality in Control Measures Against Aedes Invasive Mosquitoes".
This course was co-organized by:
- AIM COST Action
- The MediLabSecure European project.
The Local Organizers are the City Council of Valencia, University of Valencia and Lokímica.
The Training School aimed to provide comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge about entomological assessment of the efficacy of different control methods (including SIT) targeting Aedes albopictus. Classroom lessons complemented the extensive fieldwork on sampling larvae, pupae, adult males and females and "know how" transfer during field surveys. Also, participants were engaged in experimental design, analyses and interpretation of the results obtained.
Candidates were selected by the scientific committee based on their CV, motivation letter (not exceeding 250 words) following AIM-COST rules. Application by PhD students and ECIs* was favoured. Gender balance and geographical heterogeneity, and availability to contribute to AIMSurv 2022 (as testified by a letter from the head of the group) also were considered.
Scientific Committee: Alessandra della Torre, Ruben Bueno, Vincent Robert, Dusan Petric.
