On 24 November, the LIVESEED final conference for stakeholders and policymakers will take place, discussing the main results and recommendations from the projects. Four workshops will also take place to discuss the following topics:
*Organic varieties in the organic regulation
*New models of cultivar testing for organic farming
*Innovative breeding approaches for organic farming
*Strengthening organic seed markets and business models
On the 25th of November, the day will be divided into two parallel sessions:
Session I - OID - will be dedicated to opportunities for organics in Horizon Europe. After a key-note speech by Emile Frison, member of IPES-Food and the Soil Health and Food Mission Board, there will be an introduction to Horizon Europe by the European Commission. The policy debate with representatives from DG AGRI and DG Research & Innovation will focus on the Missions as new instruments in Horizon Europe. In the afternoon, the Stakeholder Forum for TP Organics members only will take place.
Session II will consist of the LIVESEED European Workshop, which will look at the implementation of the organic seed regulation as well as national progress made in the context of LIVESEED. We will also launch a European scale Router Database connecting national organic seed databases with accounts for seed suppliers and national authorities to manage seed offers.
