BRAVE project (Bee Research And Virology in Europe)

BRAVE was aimed at knowledge transfer between experts with a broad base of skills in insect virology diagnosis, immunology, epidemiology, international trade and risk management, along with scientists involved in fundamental and applied research on bees and related pollinator species.
