University teams up with United Nations body to highlight EU pesticide research project

The Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI), based at University of Gloucestershire, is collaborating with an agency of the United Nations to raise awareness of an EU-funded research project assessing the impact of pesticides on environmental and human health.

The SPRINT project is investigating the impacts of pesticides on the ecosystem, crops, livestock and communities in Europe and South America, with the ambition of driving forward the transition to more sustainable plant protection products.

As part of the collaboration, the CCRI and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations organised a joint webinar featuring presentations aimed at highlighting the ongoing work of SPRINT. Visit the University website to find out more about this story.
