On Thursday 15 June 2017, over 200 participants were present at the yearly Ctgb client-networking day in Ede, the Netherlands. The central theme of the day was innovation in plant protection and biocides.

Ctgb asked An Ghekiere from ARCHE Consortia to give a presentation on Consortia for biocidal products.  Obtaining an authorisation for biocidal products under the Biocidal Products Regulation ( BPR, EU 528/2012) requires a lot of resources. Consortia can be a good alternative for reducing costs. You can read the full article (in Dutch) and consult the presentations via the Ctgb website.
