AbstractThe aims of BRAVE are firstly, to facilitate knowledge and skills transfer between researchers and advisors within the European Research Area of bee virus diseases through the establishment of closer contacts and collaborations, and secondly to identify significant gaps in the essential scientific knowledge required to support the formulation and integration of policy on the endemic and emergent diseases of bees. The project duration is one year and the funding provided by the EC will be used for two expert meetings. The first scientific meeting was held at Sophia-Antipolis, Provence, France, and this article gives a report on the meeting.
