SESS is active in European as well as national projects

Next generation flower strips (DEPA) - 
Next generation flower strips: crop-tailored mixtures for IPM and pollinators

  • This project aims to fill the flower strip knowledge gaps and make it possible to design species mixtures consisting of plants aimed at relevant pollinators and natural enemies.

MUSBERA (DEPA) - Implementation and communication of a MUltiple-Stressor Bee Environmental Risk Assessment

  • MUSBERA aims to define a method of implementing the new ERA approach and evaluate the implications for Denmark and populations of honey and solitary bees.

EcoStack (H2020) - Stacking of ecosystems services: mechanisms and interactions for optimal crop protection, pollination enhancement, and productivity

  • EcoStack aims to develop and support ecologically, economically and socially sustainable crop production via stacking and protection of functional biodiversity

ApisRAM (EFSA) Honey-bee colony model for risk assessment 

  • An important project with a high international visibility, it is developing highly detailed simulations of a honey-bee colony. 

B-GOOD (H2020) - Giving Beekeeping Guidance by cOmputatiOnal-assisted Decision making

  • B-GOOD has the overall goal to provide guidance for beekeepers and help them make better and more informed decisions.

PoshBee (H2020) - Pan-european assessment, monitoring and migration Of Stressors on the Health of BEEs

  • PoshBee aims to support healthy bee populations, sustainable beekeeping and pollination across Europe. Integrating the knowledge and experience of academics, beekeepers and farmers.

Data collection for validation of ApisRAM (EFSA)

  • This project will provide us with a better undstanding and ability to predict how bee colonies are affected by the many stressors present in the landscape.

Landscape structure and ERA of NTAs (UBA)

  • Evaluating the impact of landscape structure and source-sink dynamics on non-target arthropod pesticide risk assessments in Germany.

BatPER (MST) - Bat pesticide exposure risk in agricultural settings

  • This project aims to examine the potential risk of dermal and inhalation exposure for bats in Danish agricultural landscape habitats, including orchards.

Anticoagulant rodenticide resistance in rodents 

  • This project examined resistance development in rodents and the effects of rodenticides on non-target species.
