An external expert has evaluated SMARTER Action, based on the Final Action Report that was submitted concerning the entire duration of the Action.
The Action was valued a lot: “This was a highly successful action that contributed new understanding to the general problem of aggressive invasive species and more particularly proposed management schemes to limit the damage and spread of a particularly aggressive European invader. This combination of basic scientific knowledge and applied management schemes is one of the great strengths of this action.”

The University of Worcester offers a number of research studentships each year. These are usually three-year, full-time doctoral research studentships. On project is on fungal spores while the second is on grass. Both projects involves traditional aerobiological methods using Burkard traps but also genomic approaches and drone technology.
The titles are:
– “Aerobiology: Detecting spatial and vertical concentrations of fungal spores in the atmosphere using bioinformatics and drone technology”
– ” Aerobiology: Phenology of grass flowering at the species level”
The projects are announced here: http://www.worcester.ac.uk/discover/phd-studentships.html
