The Conference on the Development of Plant Proteins in the European Union on 22-23 November 2018 in Vienna is co-hosted by the Austrian Minister for Sustainability and Tourism, Ms Elisabeth Köstinger and the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr Phil Hogan.
Around 200 invited experts from the agricultural supply chains for feed and food production, research and advisory networks, and national and regional administrations will discuss the main findings of the European Commission's report on the Development of Plant Proteins in the European Union on current plant protein production in the EU and its potential for further development. The first day of the conference consists of panel discussions on research and innovation, agronomic practices, environmental benefits, supply chain development and market potential in different segments of feed and food production.
On the second day of the conference, Minister Köstinger and Commissioner Hogan, together with high-level representatives from the European Parliament and key stakeholders, will debate how the existing and future policy framework could support the further unlocking of potential for plant protein production in the European Union.
