The BCPC Congress
31 Oct 2017 - 01 Nov 2017 • Brighton, United Kingdom
Abstract:
On Day 1 there will be presentations and discussions, in plenary and streamed sessions, on the current EU regulatory environment for plant protection products (chemicals and bio-pesticides) – and how this may change in the EU and the UK post-Brexit. On Day 2 the UK HSE Chemicals Regulation Division will hold an interactive workshop seeking further opinion from delegates on the direction of policy and implementation of a post-Brexit UK-based regulatory regime for chemical and biological pesticides. This will input to HSE’s initiative to understand the needs and concerns of stakeholders as a new system is developed.

Total Food 2017
31 Oct 2017 - 02 Nov 2017 • Norwich, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Institute of Food Research, on the Norwich Research Park, is hosting an international conference exploring the latest breakthroughs in research into better ways of exploiting waste and co-products from agriculture and food production. Total Food 2017 is the fifth in a series of conferences focused on the sustainable exploitation of agri-food co-products and related biomass, thereby helping to minimise waste. The conference will bring together agri-food companies, scientists, consumer organisations and waste experts to share views and the latest knowledge on ways of minimising and reusing waste. The conference will look at current food waste and its uses, and will explore new ideas and techniques for adding value to it. As well as bioenergy, biofuels and biogas, speakers will talk about extracting bioactive products that boost human health, can be used as food ingredients, as well as providing new sources of animal feed. As well as reducing wastage in the food chain, such innovations are also designed to make the way we produce our food more environmentally sustainable, as well as offering up new income streams to food and farming businesses. Total Food 2017 is being held at the John Innes Centre Conference Centre, on the Norwich Research Park, 31st October – 2nd November 2017.

Sustainable Intensification
28 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017 • Harpenden, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Agriculture accounts for around 70% of the UK land area. It plays an essential role in the rural economy not only through the production of food and other agricultural outputs, but in the delivery of a wide range of additional ecosystem services and environmental outcomes. These include the provision of clean water, the regulation of air quality, flooding, climate and nutrient cycles, biodiversity, cultural, aesthetic and recreational value.
