Enigma is Fera’s strategic R&D model established to support continued research, innovation and knowledge transfer across the agri-food sector through a joined-up approach with Fera and industry partners. The model supports the science strategy to focus on food security, climate change and biosecurity.

Fera is looking to identify future projects and industry partners who provide 100% funding collectively in the Fera led research consortia. It is anticipated that 2-3 projects will run each year.

Enigma 1 will be focusing on delivering sustainable solutions for the control of wireworm, a problem which affects potatoes, carrots, field beans and leeks, as well as cereal crops.
