BIOVEXO Xylella Forum: Status quo, expectations and research

Can Xylella disease in olives be controlled? How far are we in developing treatment & preventive solutions? What is the situation in Italy?

This year's Xylella Forum organised by the BIOVEXO project will discuss these issues from the perspective both of olive growers and local communities, and of science and solution developers. We are looking forward to expert insights from Apulian public officials, from EFSA, BBI and two research and demonstration projects financed by the European Commission, BIOVEXO and XF-Actors. The formal block will continue with an open discussion assessing the situation on the ground and solutions on the horizon. The panel will be composed of representatives of local growers and olive oil industry, local civic society and rural development experts, and a number of European and Italian scientists.

This hybrid event (on-site and online) will be in Italian with simultaneous translation to English.
