IPM Innovation in Europe 2015
The PURE congress IPM Innovation in Europe will be held on 14–16 January 2015 in Poznan, Poland.
The congress is organised by the Polish Institute of Plant Protection – National Research Institute and the European PURE project.
During this congress the accomplishments of the European project Pesticide Use and risk Reduction in European farming systems with integrated pest management – PURE will be presented and discussed.
Sharing IPM knowledge, experience and breakthroughs
The main objective of the congress is to share knowledge, experience, methodological breakthroughs and new solutions in the area of IPM, with respect to the Directive 2009/128/ EC. IPM is the coordinated and integrated use of different strategies and tactical measures, deployed at various scales aiming to control plant pests and diseases (plant pathogens, animal pests, weeds) in the most effective and economic way with special emphasis on the reduction of risks to farmers and consumers’ health; as well as environment, and biodiversity.
Within the framework of the PURE project, new methods, tools and technologies have been developed and IPM solutions designed and tested in various European regions for major cropping systems (wheat-based rotations, maize-based cropping systems, field vegetables, grapevine, pome fruit, and protected vegetables).
Why attending this congress?
The congress presents an outstanding opportunity for all parties involved in plant protection to meet, discuss and broaden their knowledge with focus on IPM implementation. This congress is of interest for all stakeholders involved with integrated pest management (IPM): researchers, advisors, farmers, actors in the supply chains, policy makers – especially those who are responsible for the development and enforcement of regulatory requirements in plant protection and integration of IPM. More than 300 participants over the three days are expected to attend the congress from across Europe and throughout the world.
The venue of the congress is the city of Poznan on the river Warta – the oldest city in the central part of Poland with a rich history and a multitude of tourist attractions.
We extend a warm welcome to attend the congress and look forward to seeing you in Poznan!
