SAFOSO is member of the new ASF-STOP project. Funding originates from the European Union (COST) and runs in the period 2016-2019. The project tackles the main challenge of stopping ASF from further spread in Europe and protecting the European pig industry. Leading European teams are gathered and will work to improve the knowledge, diagnosis, surveillance and management of ASF. SAFOSO will be mostly active in work package 3 (ASF in domestic pigs-pig industry) and work package 4 (ASF infection dynamics and control).
