EBIC and EU Danish Permanent Representation Co-organise Biostimulants’ Workshop

What regulatory framework is required to ensure the most innovative techniques and tools are developed for the agricultural sector?

On 7th February, 10.00-13.30, EBIC and the EU Danish Permanent representative will host an interactive workshop to discuss how the right regulatory framework will enable the agricultural sector to benefit from innovative modern technology, such as biostimulants. Plant biostimulants contain substances and/or micro-organisms whose function, when applied to plants or the rhizosphere, is to stimulate natural processes to enhance and benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress and crop quality.

Four experts from the European Commission, the Ministry of foreign affairs for Denmark and the biostimulants industry will share their knowledge on the role and potential of biostimulants within the circular economy.  The conversation will highlight the conditions required to favour the development of this technology and who can benefit from it.  Participants will also discuss the challenges and barriers that an incorrect regulatory framework could bring and the importance of providing an environment to promote modern innovative technology for the agricultural sector.

The objective of this workshop is to provide decision makers with diverse views and information from the biostimulant industry about  how the draft for fertilizing products, currently under negotiation, may help or hinder the agricultural sector.

JOIN EU institutions, stakeholders and industry representatives on 7th February to define the future of this innovative technology.
