The Bacterial Plant Diseases programme is an £18 million programme of research to understand the causes of bacterial diseases of UK plants, their transmission and their interactions with the wider environment. It is funded through The Strategic Priorities Fund.

The funders (BBSRC, NERC, Defra and the Scottish Government) seek to appoint a small team to coordinate projects funded through the programme. This will include BRIGIT as well as successful Phase 2 projects (see: Bacterial Plant Diseases). Details are currently being finalised and it is anticipated that the call will be issued in December 2019. The coordination team will be required to work with researchers funded through the Bacterial Plant Diseases programme to identify links and synergies between projects and to work with stakeholders across the UK to ensure effective engagement and the delivery of practical outcomes.

Full details of the role of the coordination team and application process will be announced in due course, in the meantime any queries about the coordination team should be sent to
