The latest ENDURE News was circulated towards the end of June. The first article - The James Hutton Institute joins ENDURE - contains an account of our aims and aspiration in beoming an ENDURE member. The editor writes "ENDURE is delighted to welcome a new member into its ranks, Scotland's The James Hutton Institute. The Institute was created in April 2011, bringing together the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute and SCRI (Scottish Crop Research Institute), both of which have illustrious histories. Here, Geoff Squire and Nick Birch, of the Institute's Ecological Sciences division, explain the reasons for joining ENDURE." And you can read the article here.

Other items include Networking IPM Field experiments which introduces the launch of a new ENDURE project that aims to establish a European network of long term field experiments on Integrated Pest Management, our Centre for Sustainable Cropping included. Read the article here.

Origins

ENDURE began as a European Commission funded Network of Excellence  launched in 2007 for four years (2007-2010).

The ENDURE Network was maintained after 2010 by a core group of partners, whose aim is to provide support to extension, policy and research in all aspects of integrated pest management. The James Hutton Institute is joining ENDURE as a core partner.

The ENDURE website gives full details of activities in ENDURE and links to a range of publications and downloads. This page on the LEAF Innnovation Centre site will give information and links on ENDURE matters relevant to local issues in sustainable crop production.

The James Hutton Institute has been working with ENDURE partners for some time in topics such as the potential for a network of platforms across Europe, future funding in IPM and the special contribution we can make to ENDURE through our regional site networks, contacts and infrastructure.
