INTERFUTURE will train a new generation of scientists with complementary and interdisciplinary skills in MICROBIOLOGY, PLANT PATHOLOGY, ENTOMOLOGY, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, MOLECULAR BIOLOGY.
The main objectives of the research projects are:

  1. to overcome bottlenecks in bio-based products application by exploring the ecology of microbe-host interaction at the community level;
  2. to improve existing microbial biofertilisers by unravelling the biology and exploiting the complementarities of nitrogen-fixing and growth-promoting bacteria;
  3. to exploit natural molecules to shape plant-beneficial microflora and improve plant resilience to disease;
  4. to develop novel volatile organic compounds of bacterial origin for the control of soilborne diseases;
  5. to design and develop innovative insect traps and trapping strategies based on the activity of kairomones produced by microorganisms.
