The global biopesticide industry is projected to grow by more than 14% over the next five years, as growers face growing resistance to chemical insecticides combined with the regulatory removal of some of the most-used chemical controls.
The Summit agenda will seek to anticipate and address future requirements with more sustainable solutions. It aims to connect industry and academia to create novel ideas and services, next generation formulations and delivery systems and provide support for accessing investments to commercialise novel products.
The event brings together key players in the international bioprotection community, including innovators, academics, commercial providers and end-users. Speakers will include world-leading scientists, key industry stakeholders, investors, policymakers and integrated pest management practitioners. Those already confirmed include Craig Bennett, CEO, The Wildlife Trusts, Lisa Moakes, Regulatory Specialist at Health and Safety Executive and Pamela Marrone, CEO and Founder of Marrone Bio Innovations.
Dr Minshad Ansari, Summit chairman and CEO of Bionema said: “By helping to bridge the gap between academia and industry on the one hand, and commercial providers, growers and buyers on the other, this Summit can address the issues that really matter for the biopesticide industry: namely, where is the next generation of commercially viable innovation coming from, and how will they be financed?”
