Q-DETECT is a multi-disciplinary research network focused on developing innovative tools that enhance the capacity of phytosanitary inspectors to protect European agriculture and forestry sectors from invasive pests.. Q-DETECT International Innovation.. International Innovation - version Francaise.. Principal Project Objectives.. The multidisciplinary, international Q-DETECT consortium has a long-term goal to develop reliable detection methods for quarantine pests and pathogens (throughout the proposal referred to as pests) for use by national plant protection organizations (NPPO) and inspection services.. The aim of the consortium is to develop advanced sampling anddetection methods for early and reliable detection of quarantine pests of plants.. The project will take a holistic approach and thus the methods developed will be suitable for use by National Plant Protection Organisations (NPPO s) in official inspection and surveillance programmes.. The methods will be based on biochemical (detection of volatile organiccompounds (VOC) and nucleic acid), acoustic (including resonance), remote imaging (incorporating spectral andautomated data analysis) and trapping (especially Q-insect pests and Q-pathogen vectors).. One of the main areas of work will be the optimisation of monitoring and sampling methods using interdisciplinary work on statistics and modelling.. The methods will be primarily developed for use on-site and at the point of entry, though the methods will also be useful for at-origin inspections.. The project will concentrate on developing methods for economically and environmentally important quarantine pests where currently we lack adequate methods in the agricultural, horticultural and forestry areas.. The methods will support NPPO s in the implementation of Council Directive 2000/29/EC.. The consortium has identified the major challenges in achieving these ambitious goals and as a result formulated four principal project objectives.. 1.. Investigate and develop a range of enabling technologies for the detection of quarantine pests by NPPOs.. 2.. Validate the methods by close collaboration with countries both inside and outside the EU where the target organism is.. present, such that the technologies can be tested on real material in real inspection situations.. 3.. By working with inspection services and NPPOs, model the complex role and relationships between plant health.. inspections, the use of different detection methods, monitoring and sampling techniques.. Model potential outcomes of.. the use of new detection techniques and evaluate the benefits of their  ...   confirmatory and monitoring methods based on the detection of nucleic acid.. Work Package 7.. To disseminate results obtained within the project and to evaluate the methods in mandated labs within the EU and third countries.. News related to Q-detect work..

    Descriptive info: The overall strategy of the work plan.. The project has been divided into 7 work packages.. Each work package is interdependent, relying on specific expertise of thepartners involved for its completion.. The flow of critical information and material between workpackages, information for dissemination and an illustration of timing of each work package is illustrated in the PERT diagram below.. Detection of target pests.. The Q-DETECT project is an ambitious one in that the consortium is aiming to develop and investigate a range of diverse yet complementary technologies.. In order to make this ambitious undertaking possible it has been necessary to match up the pests carefully with the technology being developed.. Using the most appropriate technology: Q-pest as a model system for development purposes gives two main benefits to the project, firstly it enables focused technology development research to be performed using a good model system.. Secondly, since the model targets being used have been identified as being high priority the project will develop innovative technologies suitable for surveillance-use by inspection services in EU Member States or for use at border inspection and will as a result deliver techniques that can be used at the end of the project..
