VIVALDI (Preventing and Mitigating Farmed Bivalve Diseases) is a European scientific project, financed in the framework of the EU Research and Development programme called Horizon 2020. It is carried out by a consortium of 21 partners, from 10 countries. It will last 4 years, till February 2020. VIVALDI’s overarching purpose is to increase the sustainability and competitiveness of the European shellfish industry. For this, it will aim at improving the understanding of the diseases and developing practical solutions to prevent, control and manage them. The main species to be studied will be: oysters, mussels, clams and scallops.
In 2019, VIVALDI researchers have published 7 articles emphasising some key scientific results obtained thanks to our project. Most of these publications are the outcome of joint work between different European teams.
The VIVALDI project will hold its Final Conference from 26 to 28 November 2019 in Brest (F). A provisionnal programme is now available!
This workshop, taking place in the framework of the EAFP Annual congress, aims at crossing experiences from research conducted in Europe by VIVALDI project partners with research conducted by other experts in Europe and beyond.
