IOBC-WPRS encourages collaboration in promoting feasible and environmentally safe methods of pest and pathogen control.
The scientific and technical activity of IOBC-WPRS is carried by Working Groups, Study Groups and Commissions.
Such expert groups are composed of scientists and other professional IOBC-WPRS members and coming from at least three different countries.
Working & Study Groups
A Working Group (WG) is responsible for a precise programme and the evaluation of the results obtained.
Study Groups (SG) are Working Groups which are under construction.
