Future IPM 3.0
Da Lunedì, 16 Ottobre 2017 ore 08:00 a Venerdì, 20 Ottobre 2017 ore 20:00
We would like to invite you to the forthcoming event Future IPM 3.0 on October 16-20, 2017, Riva del Garda, Italy.
The conference is at its third edition and will be organized by Fondazione Edmund Mach (FEM), Laimburg Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry (LAIMBURG), Free University of Bolzano-Bozen (UNIBZ), University of Trento (UNITN), University of Innsbruck (UIBK), International Organisation for Biological and Integrated control (IOBC/WPRS), International Biocontrol Manufacturers’ Association (IBMA) with collaboration of the University of Padova (UNIPD), the Mediterranean Phytopathological Union (MPU) under the patronage of Euregio Tyrol-South Tyrol- Trentino (EUREGIO), the Autonomous Province of Trento (PAT), and the Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano (PAB).
Venue of the congress is the Palacongressi of Riva del Garda, which is located in a lovely area in the Northern side of Lake Garda.
Approximately 1000 participants are expected to register over the five days of events. Several congresses and conferences successfully address specific tools to improve plant protection against pest and pathogens; however, the future challenge will be the integrated concept of IPM. In this context the congress will provide a unique opportunity to share regulatory, scientific, and technological information in the field of “reducing pesticide use-and-risk in integrated pest management (IPM)”. The main objective is to promote knowledge exchange among scientists, companies, farmers, advisors, policy makers and supply chain stakeholders, and identify approaches, tools and techniques to meet the future needs of crop protection for a SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE and DEVELOPMENT.
The highlight of our Congress is without a doubt the scientific program, which, thanks to invited keynote speakers and scientific contributions, explores new directions in IPM and tools particularly focusing on the contribution of science and industry in their practical implementation.
Complementing the main program are the parallel scientific workshops with the contributions, demos and sponsored presentations and the wide exhibition of posters and stands.
A Congress of this magnitude would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of several people and institutions and the support of our industry partners, sponsors and exhibitors. On behalf of thr organizing committee we wish you a wonderful stay in Riva del Garda and memorable experiences from this Conference.
