BRIGIT Webinar training survey 2020


Thanks again for agreeing to take part in this survey of people who have seen the BRIGIT Webinar from the 3rd June 2020.

The BRIGIT project builds the UK’s capability to prevent establishment of vector-borne plant pathogens and to increase our preparedness to respond should they be introduced.

The aim of this survey is to understand your motivations and the barriers you may face in helping the project meet its aims. Your responses along with those from attendees at BRIGIT training events in 2019 will be used to make improvements in training for ecological data collection methods in the future. The information will be used to raise awareness and enhance the potential for prevention and early detection of Xylella fastidiosa entering the UK.

Data from this survey will be presented in the form of written documents and presentations for internal audiences within the partner organisations (Forest Research, John Innes Centre, NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, University of Sussex, University of Salford, University of Stirling, Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture, Royal Horticultural Society, Fera Science Ltd, and Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales). Some of this research may later be used in documents that are placed in the public domain, e.g. published in a peer-reviewed journal article, but will always be in an anonymised form.

If you have other questions or complaints about the research, please contact Chris Pollard or 0300 067 5240.
