The nEUROSTRESSPEP logo, in blue

nEUROSTRESSPEP is a Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, funded by the European Commission. We are a large consortium of 14 collaborators, spanning both hemispheres, dedicated to identifying new and 'greener' ways of controlling pest insect populations in the context of integrated pest management.

Our new approaches for biopesticide development are based on cutting-edge technologies focussed on the insects' own peptide hormones and their synthetic mimetics, to selectively control insect pests of agriculture, horticulture and forestry, while preserving beneficial insects such as honeybees.
