CBC's Collaboration Partners

Last changed: 12 January 2018

CBC interacts with many external stakeholders in sustainable biocontrol methods. It is important for us to have a close contact with both governmental and the industry, as well as stakholder organisations and research institutes.

Research institutes

Christian Steinberg, INRA (Frankrike)

– I enjoy working with the CBC, the fact that the different kingdoms of life are considered together as well as the activities of different groups working with multiple and complementary skills. Although more directly involved in the biological control of plant pathogenic fungi, I appreciate that they are in a systems approach.


Michael Traugott, University of Innsbruck, Austria

– I like the close link between cutting edge research, stakeholder organizations, government agencies and industry. This makes the CBC an ideal platform for the implementation of the latest strategies in biological control.

Government agencies

Birte Fonnesbech Vogel, Principal Scientific adviser at Danish Environmental Protection Agency

– Ingvar Sundh’s research in CBC with new strategies and methodology for assessing safety of biocontrol agents is respected worldwide. His work has great importance for risk assessment of microbial pesticides and biocides. His cooperation with regulatory issues like, developing new criteria for plant protection products with low risk in the expert group at the EU Commission, is greatly appreciated.
