Virtual Q&A Sessions

Virtual participants will be able to follow all our Section Meetings and Assembly General and be updated on policy developments and key issues. In addition, we offer a virtual networking area that will enable you to engage and grow your business network. And we will hold a number of exclusive on-line Q&A sessions, reserved for virtual participants only, with members of the Euroseeds team and external experts, to discuss special regulatory or other important issues.

As of June 1st, you will already be able to make your individual meeting requests, inquiries, confirmations and appointments directly via the Congress platform, supporting a seamless business environment for both your on-site and remote meeting schedule.

For the first time, Euroseeds will be hosting Special Virtual Q&A Sessions on key issues during the three days of the 2021 Congress.
These sessions are specifically offered to virtual participants (see Registration for Virtual Participation) but are also accessible to all other registered on-site participants.
In the different sessions, we will host experts from the Secretariat as well as invited guests and offer in-depth discussions on specific issues that are at the top of the agenda of the seed sector in Europe and beyond.
The programme below is indicative and may still be changed in the coming months in view of new developments and needs.
