This year’s Xylella Forum organised by the BBI JU-funded BIOVEXO project will discuss the Xylella disease in olive trees as well as the development of treatment and preventive solutions.
The event will gather experts including Apulian public officials, speakers from EFSA and from the projects BIOVEXO and XF-Actors. A panel discussion with local growers, representatives of the olive oil industry, local civil society and rural development experts will conclude the event.
The event will be in Italian with simultaneous translation into English where needed.
BBI JU Project Officer Ana Cuadrado will participate in the event and explain the main achievements of BBI JU, the future partnership CBE JU and what the BBI JU initiative is doing to improve the participation of the agriculture sector in the bio-based value chains.
