To achieve this goal, 4 activities (work packages) are planned:
WP1-Coordination: aimed to implement effective administrative and financial management in achieving the expected objectives.
WP2-Monitoring: aimed to controll the various project phases.
WP3-Project research activities: Constitution and conservation of mother plants of economically relevant varieties/species (3.1); Phytosanitary analysis of Mediterranean germplasm of nursery interest by high throughput sequencing (3.2) Validation and transfer of innovative diagnostic systems for the identification of harmful organisms (3.3); Validation and transfer of eco-sustainable multiplication and production protocols for “Mediterranean” species (3.4); Evaluation of the susceptibility of ornamental species to Xylella fastidiosa infections (3.5); Economic analysis (3.6); Environmental impact analysis (3.7)
