Unfortunately, the TWIC-proposal did not pass the second stage of the ERA-NET call C-IPM. We feel searching for other funding is worthwhile taking into account both, the quality of the proposal and the good collaboration within the consortium. In addition, other funding might be better than the one available within C-IPM. So, we will continue to look for opportunities to implement TWIC. It is an appealing result of research based on the eco-metabolomics approach to crop protection.
