Save the Date & Register now for the Organic Innovation Days 2021
For this year’s edition of Organic Innovation Days, TP Organics is collaborating with the European research projects RELACS and Organic-PLUS. These two Horizon 2020-funded EU projects aim to reduce the use of contentious inputs in organic farming.
What to expect?
The first day will discuss alternatives to contentious inputs in organic farming and participants will take a closer look at crop protection products. Different alternatives and results will be presented by the experts of the projects and discussed afterwards.
On the second day, Organic-PLUS and RELACS experts will present the socio-economic results of the projects in 3 sessions:
- Consumer perspectives and citizen juries;
- Socio-economic and environmental impacts of alternative tools and technologies;
- Acceptance level of different alternative inputs, towards a European roadmap for replacing contentious inputs.
These exchanges will be followed by a high-level policy debate on how to tackle contentious inputs in organic farming before the event is concluded with an outline of the next steps.
The event will take place online via the virtual event platform Hubilo. You will receive the link to the online event together with the confirmation email. Present on social media?
