Global Engage is pleased to announce the Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome will be held on the 14th and 15th May 2018 in Rotterdam, Holland with the co-located 6th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress Europe.
After the great feedback we got from our American Biocontrol, Biostimulants, & Microbiome meeting, we have decided to expand this series to now include a European event exploring the latest developments in this fast moving and fascinating industry.
With over 60 speakers at this co-located event and over 7 hours of dedicated networking time, this meeting offers an exceptional opportunity to interact with and learn from both the speakers and your fellow attendees. A dynamic exhibition room of technology providers showcasing the latest technologies and solutions will also be open throughout the event.

Increasing prioritisation of sustainability in agriculture has led to rapid growth in the agricultural biologicals industry. The benefits of biological products in agriculture are significant, and developments in technology and research make agricultural biologicals an exciting, dynamic industry in which to work and study. It is also slowly becoming clear that we cannot address the need for increased crop productivity to feed a growing world population without better understanding of the interactions between plants and the organisms in their environments which is why this is the perfect time to learn more about plant and soil microbiome research as well as the biocontrol and biostimulant products that are being developed to serve this need.
A key focus of the event is facilitating collaboration between the senior representatives from industry and academia who attend and in terms of content, the conference will examine the latest technologies, strategies and research in the growing biologicals and microbiome industry.
The conference will feature expert led presentations, a high level panel discussion on the future of investment in agricultural biologicals, and roundtable discussions on topics such as metagenomics methods, product commericialisation, industry-academia collaboration, and agricultural biologicals regulation.
