Jette Knudsen is the chairman of the ICUP 2025 organizing committee.

“After the close of ICUP 2022 in Barcelona, we assembled our 2025 Organising Committee, which includes members from most Nordic countries. We are already working hard to prepare another stimulating and productive ICUP event,” Knudsen said in the news release.

As at previous ICUP conferences, the 2025 program will address the science and management of a wide variety of urban pests and vectors, including those of hygiene, structural and medical importance. Particular focus will be on pests that have an increasing impact as a result of our changing world. The impact of regulatory and stewardship challenges will also be included.

In addition to the main conference sessions, there will be breakout sessions and workshops, as well as the ever-popular conference dinner. Equally important are the informal networking time”
