WP 5 (Dynamic models and control measures)


WP 5 (Dynamic models and control measures) activity will be carried out with the aim of developing models for spatio-temporal dynamics of Ae. albopictus, Ae. koreicus, and D. suzukii. In addition the models developed will provide insight into the impact of control measures and scenario analysis for possible future outbreaks of Chikungunya and other mosquito-borne diseases. The WP activities will be performed in strong collaboration with WP2 and WP3 for the ecological background of both mosquitoes species and D. suzukii and with WP4 for the estimates of temperature-dependent model parameters. Output of WP5 will be used as input for risk assessment and economic evaluation (WP6).

WP leaders:
Dr Stefano Merler, FBK, Italy
Prof Andrea Pugliese, University of Trento, Italy
