 +++ONLINE CONFERENCE+++

The Akademie Fresenius International Biocontrol Conference will continue to be the perfect platform for bringing together the regulatory, industrial and consulting communities. For now, with the COVID-19 crisis, it will be difficult to gather physically. However, since we all need to learn from one another, and important regulatory changes are continuing to be made, we have decided to transfer our dialogue in the virtual space. We therefore cordially invite you to join this year’s Online Conference. Plenty of exciting presentations are awaiting you! And they will all be accessible from the comfort of your home or your office, thus reducing travel on the one hand and increasing accessibility on the other hand. We are looking forward to meeting you!
