The SUStainable Crop PROTection in Agriculture Program recently allowed graduate and undergraduate students to spend time in one of four institutes in Western Europe and to gain a global perspective on sustainable agriculture. These international experiences established many professional relationships, helped develop graduate student research techniques, and fostered ongoing associations with faculty and labs.

The goal of this program was to promote scientific cooperation and collaborative education between academic and professional communities in the European Community and the United States.
