The Plant Biologicals Network (PBN) has been formed by a number of key academic and industrial players in Southern Scandinavia with the purpose of facilitating knowledge exchange on research, innovation, regulation, and education within the field of naturally-derived products, including biostimulants and biocontrol agents. Additionally the network aims at creating awareness on the future for these promising new technologies.
On behalf of Bio2Bio Consortium, Dr Lin Xu was invited to present at the PBN Inaugural Symposium held on 14th, November in Copenhagen University. The symposium aims at inspiring knowledge exchange between academia and industry with common goals to improve plant health and productivity by novel technologies. Current progress of Bio2Bio, contributing to replacing conventional agrochemicals by means of biostimulants and biopesticides, was presented at the Symposium. The concept and potential impact of the project were delivered to the attendees, with whom potential collaborations could be set up in future.
