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.
