The Max Planck Center on next Generation Insect Chemical Ecology

Project: Research

Project Details


This is a high level cooperation between the Max Planck Society, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU, Alnarp), and Lund University. The purpose is to allocate complimentary resources, such as scientific expertise, techniques and equipment, to an urgent research field during 5 years. All partners contribute equally to the funding. The nGICE Center focuses on better understanding of the consequences of global change on insect ecosystem services, outbreaks of invasive insect species and the spread of disease vectors into Europe through the lens of insect chemical communication systems.
