Last week to register for the Organic Innovation Days 2020 – Brought to you by TP Organics and LIVESEED – 24-25 November 2020, online

Interested in organic research & innovation to transform food & farming? Interested in organic seed & plant breeding?

This is the last week to register for the free and virtual edition of the Organic Innovation Days 2020, the only EU event on research & innovation for organic taking place online on 24-25 November, using SpotMe.

Join us in celebrating innovations and discussing research priorities for organics and agroecology with organic actors covering the whole food value chain as well as EU policymakers! You will also be able to network and chat with like-minded participants, post relevant information on the feed and participate in meaningful discussions via our virtual discussion boards.

For this year’s edition, TP Organics is partnering with the Horizon 2020 project LIVESEED that aims to boost organic seed and plant breeding across Europe. It involves 50 partners covering 18 European countries.

On day 1, the LIVESEED final conference for stakeholders and policymakers will take place.

Day 2 will be divided into two parallel sessions:

  • Session I: Opportunities for organics in Horizon Europe. After a key-note speech by Emile Frison, member of IPES-Food and the Soil Health and Food Mission Board, there will be an introduction to Horizon Europe by the European Commission. The policy debate with representatives from DG AGRI and DG Research & Innovation will focus on the Missions as new instruments in Horizon Europe. In the afternoon, the Stakeholder Forum for TP Organics members only will take place.
  • Session II: LIVESEED European Workshop, which will look at the implementation of the organic seed regulation as well as national progress made in the context of LIVESEED.

Check out the full programme and register by 20 November.
