The Community Network for Vector-Borne Plant Viruses (CONNECTED) is a vector-borne disease network based at the University of Bristol, UK.
We build multidisciplinary research capacity to tackle crop diseases spread by insects.
Our research includes…
We have trained approximately…
We create resilience against climate change
- Creating multi-disciplinary collaborations with researchers in areas of climate modelling, food security, nutrition and human health
- We offer opportunities to work with the communities and researchers directly affected by various aspects of climate change
- More research leads to better tools to tackle insect-borne viruses, strengthening farmers’ ability to combat crop diseases and putting them a step ahead
