Dr. Gritta Schrader (JKI)

I prepare and coordinate statutory plant health risk analyses at the Julius Kühn Institute for National and International Plant Health. An important topic of my research is the assessment of the risk of introduction and spread, the pest potential and the impact of plant pests including invasive alien species on plant health and biodiversity. The planned activities in Use Case 3 to improve research data management on pests and yields are also highly relevant to our work. Better accessibility and usability of relevant data can help us to better assess the risks of plant pests, including economic and ecological damage, and the effects on ecosystem services. Our good networking at international level within the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) help to link FAIRagro’s activities internationally.
