IHMT

Mosquito-borne diseases emerging or re-emerging in Europe are a serious cause of concern to human health. CA 17108 AIM-Aedes Invasive Mosquitoes (AIM) aims at establishing a transboundary network of partners and institutions across Europe and to facilitate co-ordinated multidisciplinary research. It presently, includes academics, public health officers, private companies and stakeholders from 34 COST Full Member Countries, 6 Near-Neighbouring Countries and 1 International Country.

The 2nd AIM-COST Annual Conference will be focused on Surveillance of Aedes Invasive Mosquitoes in Europe. In particular, sessions will be focused on surveillance and risk mapping, monitoring of insecticide resistance and gaps and solutions for harmonization and improvements of European policies and guidelines (see Preliminary Agenda).

AIM-COST will support the participation of Management Committee Members from COST-Full Member Countries, invited speakers and coordinators/deputies of AIM-COST Working Groups and related Tasks. In addition, a call for abstract is open for oral communication during the Conference. Participation of selected speakers will be also supported by AIM-COST.
