2024: Advancing Bioprotection through Innovation and Collaboration – Exciting Initiatives Ahead!

For 2024, the WBF Team is delighted to announce many initiatives designed to reach our primary goal of advancing the bioprotection sector with innovation through collaboration. To begin with, we are launching a series of free monthly webinars covering a range of topics, from regulatory affairs and pitch preparation to seasonal challenges and product formulation. We are also gearing up for this year’s World BioProtection Awards and, as we look back on a successful campaign of regulatory reform in the UK, we are pleased to progress to Phase 3 of the campaign, which expands our activities to other regions, including the EU.

As always, we extend our thanks to all supporting members of the WBF, who enable us to continue our work.

Hold your ‘last Thursdays’ for this year’s monthly webinars!

Those of you who attended last year’s monthly webinars on Global Harmonisation of Biopesticides will join us in thanking IDRG.eu for their collaboration on this insightful series, which was very popular in many countries. This year, due to popular demand for accessible lectures by world-leading experts, our programme will cover a broader range of topics, including Regulation, Innovation, Formulation, Commercialisation, and even tips on delivering the Perfect Pitch for your start-up!

Webinars are scheduled for the last Thursday of every month throughout 2024. Our webinars are free to access (ensuring total accessibility to all) throughout 2024. The full programme can be found here (coming soon).

The World BioProtection Forum

What is the WBF doing?

WBF is a non-profit organisation that encourages collaboration between the biocontrol industry and academia in the AgriTech sector. Our goal is to connect different stakeholders who can work together to ensure the successful development and commercialisation of biocontrol products.

As well as supporting this series of virtual seminars, the WBF is running a regulatory campaign to reform regulations for biopesticides in the UK (as the country is looking to revise regulations post-Brexit and is welcoming suggestions at this time. Part of the campaign includes a focus on encouraging applicants for new biopesticides to follow a route for joint review at the time of pre-submission meetings with the HSE, and to help make more biopesticide companies aware of this process.

The WBF is dedicated to connecting stakeholders from across the Agri Bio / Agritech, with the goal of overcoming the hurdles and challenges that seem to hinder the progress of innovation and commercialisation.
