Enterprise Europe Network and NRI Biopesticide Meeting - Greenwich

I dashed down to the Old Royal Naval College, University of Greenwich, London from the Excel centre on Thursday morning to take part in the Enterprise Europe Network Biopesticide event.  It would have been good to have stayed all day had the event not clashed with PestEx.  This Enterprise Europe Network SE UK and the Natural Resources Institute joint event was designed to provide an opportunity to hear from a range of pest management stakeholders on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and the drivers for change in pest management technologies and practices in European agriculture and horticulture and to bring these together with representatives from companies in different parts of the industry wishing to learn about and exploit new markets for alternatives to conventional chemical pesticides

The event was aimed at stakeholders in the current and new technologies and regulatory aspects of biopesticides and IPM along with the companies engaged in the manufacturing and supply chains that will be affected by changes in legislation, technology and associated farming practices and of course the farmers themselves and representative bodies from the Agricultural Sector.
