On 1 March 2020, a consortium of seven European companies specialised in bio-based pheromone application and production launched PHERA, the first project funded under the BBI JU 2019 Call.

PHERA received €6.4 million grant from the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project will develop and commercialise bio-based pest control with insect pheromones that will sustainably protect crops, thus contributing to biodiversity in Europe.
