EuChemS participates in Strategic Dialogue on the Future of EU Agriculture

May 6, 2024

EuChemS was invited to the Strategic Dialogue on the Future of EU Agriculture by the European Commission, to provide science- and chemical policy perspectives related to the union’s agri-food policy. The dialogue sought avenues on how to tackle agri-policy challenges related to sustainability and the planetary boundaries, as well as on how opportunities offered by knowledge and technological innovation can be utilised in agriculture.

In its response, EuChemS emphasized the value in supporting research and development, and academia-policy discussions exemplified by the EuChemS Periodic Table workshops. The elements of nitrogen, phosphorus and the substance glyphosate were highlighted, as well as recommendations to incentivise alternative methods.
