| IPM 2.0 Program
Welcome to the 10th Conference of the
European Foundation for Plant Pathology (EFPP) in Wageningen.
conference, organized by the Royal Netherlands Society for Plant
Pathology (KNPV), has been entitled:
“IPM 2.0 – Towards
future-proof crop protection in Europe”.
committee has chosen this theme as European society expects much from
crop protection research in the coming years. We, researchers associated
with EFPP, have the task to develop new tools to support National Action
Plans, which each member state of the EU has to develop and adopt in the
framework of the new EU regulation on Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
The ultimate aim of the EU-policy is an improved, coherent and broadly
embraced IPM (hence “IPM 2.0”) enabling and strengthening a fully
sustainable crop protection (future-proof). We have therefore striven
for a multidisciplinary conference that evaluates all existing aspects
of IPM and incites new required technologies for its successful
implementation in a broad variety of agronomic settings.
that the program meets your expectations and that you will enjoy your
time in Wageningen.
