The PathoBios International Joint Laboratory, a Observatory of Plant pestand Disease in West Africa: Biodiversityand Biosafety, formalized the long-term partnership between INERA and Burkina Faso and IRD in France in the field of crop protection. It was created in 2013 for a period of 5 years renewed in 2019, with a broader partnership with universities in Burkina Faso, Nazi Boni University, Joseph Ki-Zerbo University as well as CIRAD in France and UCL in Belgium.

The colloquium will be organized in the form of plenary sessions (inaugural lectures), parallel sessions, symposia and a round table. For the plenary sessions, 4 inaugural conferences are planned (one conference per day over the first 4 days) followed by parallel communications in 4 different rooms. The papers will be organized into sub-themes linked to the general theme of each inaugural conference. The 5th day of the conference will be devoted to a visit to the Regional Center for Environmental and Agricultural Research and Kamboinsé Training of INERA, located 15 km north of Ouagadougou. Throughout this event, stands will be set up on the conference site for the exhibition of posters prepared by students and young researchers.

«The first period of the International Joint Laboratory PathoBios was a success: it was an opportunity for students from Burkina Faso and West Africa to be trained in research (Master, Thesis) and for professionals in the field of agriculture to be trained in phytopathology and disease diagnostic. »
« The assessment of the International Joint Laboratory, Phase 1 is excellent as it meets a key need in agriculture, which is to protect crops from devastating pests. »
« The International Joint Laboratory was successful thanks to its dynamism and perseverance in establishing sustainable operational experimental platforms in the two sites of Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso in Burkina Faso. »
« Le LMI a réussi à obtenir des résultats significatifs non seulement dans le domaine de la biotechnologie des protéines (vaccin anti-leishmanie, protéine insecticide), mais aussi dans le domaine du développement d’outils de diagnostics d’agents pathogènes (virus, bactéries, champignons). »
