DEFEND is a Horizon 2020 project running from 2018 to 2023. This research received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under agreement No 773701.

Led by scientists at The Pirbright Institute, DEFEND aims to control the growing African swine fever (ASF) and lumpy skin disease (LSD) epidemics in Europe by understanding what drives outbreaks of these diseases, through generating research that allows the development of new diagnostic tools and vaccines, and by working closely with decision-makers to make appropriate and rapid responses.

The consortium partners include academia, government and industry, and come from 21 countries across Europe as well as Russia, Canada, Israel, Azerbaijan, South Africa and Australia. “By partnering these 31 varied and specialised organisations we hope to streamline the journey from scientific discoveries to policy implementation that will ultimately help to control these devastating diseases” said Dr Beard.
