15 Jun - 16 Jun 2021, Online Conference | Die Akademie Fresenius GmbH
For many years, the Akademie Fresenius International AGRO Conference "Behaviour of Pesticides in Air, Soil and Water" has been the perfect platform for bringing together the regulatory, industrial and consulting communities. With the COVID-19 crisis, it has become difficult to gather physically. However, since we all need to continue to learn from one another, we have decided to keep up our dialogue in the virtual space. We therefore cordially invite you to join this year’s Online Conference. Plenty exciting presentations are awaiting you! And they will all be accessible from the comfort of your home or your office, thus reducing travel on the one hand and increasing accessibility on the other hand. We are looking forward to meeting you!
Managing directors, boards of directors, members of supervisory boards, managers and scientists in the fields of:
