The Department of Innovation funds our BotVid-Sensor project for early detection of a fungus causing severe losses in grapevines.

Abr 19, 2024

The Generalitat Valenciana, through the Department of Innovation, Industry, Trade, and Tourism, finances our BotVid-Sensor project for the development of an early and low-cost alert system to identify the presence of Botrytis cinerea in vine crops even before the first signs of infection are observed. The initiative also benefits from the financial support of the Valencian Institute of Competitiveness and Innovation (IVACE+i) and funding from the European Union under the FEDER Community of Valencia program for the period 2021-2027.

The BotVid-Sensor project aims to develop a portable system that can be used in the field by non-specialized personnel, facilitating early, routine and low-cost detection of this fungus, responsible for one of the most harmful and widespread fungal diseases, known as gray mold.

What makes this project even more exciting is its multidisciplinary and collaborative approach. Renowned institutions such as the Institute of Integrative and Systems Biology (I2SysBio) and the Mediterranean Agroforestry Institute (IAM), along with the company Valgenetics and La Unió Llauradora i Ramadera, are joining forces to tackle this challenge.

In addition to its immediate impact on viticulture, this project also opens the door to future applications in sustainable agriculture, demonstrating that innovation can lead to solutions that not only protect our crops but also preserve the environment and human health.

With financial support at both regional and European levels, and the commitment of all stakeholders involved, BotVid-SENSOR promises not only to transform the way we address this particular threat in vineyards but also to pave the way for a safer and more sustainable agricultural future for all.

¡Muchas felicidades y enhorabuena! 😍 ¡Muy merecido!

Hoy he tenido el placer de hablar de la vigilancia epidemiológica en aguas residuales en el IES Federica Montseny de Burjassot. Casi una hora de discusión con el alumnado del uso de las aguas para monitorizar poblaciones y de la importancia de la ciencia en la toma de decisiones!

Una representació de l'equip #RunnersCSICCV va participar ahir diumenge en la #València 15k y 7.5k Abierta al mar (@VCRunning). Enhorabona i gràcies per portar la samarreta del @CSIC fins la meta!
