In2Care is Project Coordinator of the MCD project. This research project is funded under the European Union’s Framework 7 Health Innovation initiative and aims to develop a novel Mosquito Contamination Device (MCD) for controlling malaria vectors. The goal is to develop prototype products that are effective, low-cost and sustainable.
The project partners include three European SMEs and two academic partners that bring together a unique mix of expertises in materials science, mosquito vector control science, trapping technologies, and entrepreneurial interests. Jointly, we develop and test new vector control techniques, mosquito lures and bioactive ingredients in the laboratory, semi-field cages and field settings in Tanzania.
