Moderated by Estelle Balian

 

Gathering 13 European projects (ongoing or recently ended) working on pesticide related issues, this workshop represents an unique opportunity to bring together research efforts already funded by the European Commission and share existing results to move towards a pesticide free agriculture.

The objectives of this workshop are therefore twofold:

  • Foster exchanges between the project’s representative and identify and promote possible synergies between EU projects.
  • Initiate a collective reflection to identify urgent research needs to move towards a pesticide free agriculture. This will lay the foundations for the production of a policy brief that will be formatted after the workshop and transmitted to the European Commission.

This session will be facilitated by a moderator and will consist of several collective or small group activities aimed at breaking the ice, exchanging on each other's projects, and brainstorming collectively (on a world café basis) on research priorities to be communicated to the Commission.

More than a dozen of Horizon 2020 projects (ongoing or recently completed) will be represented in this workshop
