5th Biopesticide Event 2017

Presentations & B2B Meetings 

On Thursday 20th April 2017

at the University of Greenwich, London

Enterprise Europe Network is organising the 5th Biopesticide B2B event.

The event will focus on:

  • Developing and Integrating Biopesticides
  • Advances and Perspectives

This will be the fifth Greenwich Biopesticides Event organised by the Enterprise Europe Network and the European Centre for Integrated Pest Management (at the Natural Resources Institute, University of Greenwich) in partnership with the Agrisciences Group of the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI).

The day is aimed at integrated pest management and biopesticide technology stakeholders: researchers and suppliers of current and new technologies, manufacturers, regulatory and government organisations/groups and of course the farmer and grower communities who are aspiring to use IPM principles and methodologies.

The network forum encourages and facilitates delegates to establish linkages with other players in the sector, to identify gaps, barriers and seize opportunities to collaborate as the pressures increase to reduce reliance on chemical usage.

The event, for which attendance is free, will follow the previously established format and comprise of:

  • plenary presentations by invited speakers
  • several 10-15 minute business and research pitch presentations from companies/researchers seeking interest/collaboration/take-up. If you are interested in becoming a pitch presenter, please contact the main organisers directly (see the Contact tab on this page).
  • a matchmaking event, where delegates can participate in pre-planned 1:1 meetings aimed at future collaborations, making new contacts and exploring technical and commercial partnering opportunities.

Those registered with BASIS can claim 5 CPD points for attending.
