We cordially invite all stakeholders and interesting parties to attend the NUTRIMAN final conference to be held on September 16, 2021.
The agriculture and food industry sectors have a high dependence on resources in their production and they are striving for long-term sustainability. In this context, there is an urgent need to optimise resource use and make a transition towards knowledge-driven agriculture. The NUTRIMAN project is supporting the need to spread knowledge and network information towards agricultural practitioners about the insufficiently exploited N/P recovery innovative research results (technologies, products, practices). The project objective is to improve the exploitation of the N/P nutrient management/recovery potential for the ready-for-practice cases not sufficiently known by practitioners.
NUTRIMAN is a Nitrogen and Phosphorus nutrient recovery management and nutrient recovery thematic network, which is compiling knowledge ready-for-practice. The recovered N/P innovative fertilisers hosted in the farmer platform, are being produced from un-exploited resources of organic or secondary raw materials in line with the circular economy model.
During the final conference, the focus will be on summarising, sharing and presenting the three years project results, about the existing nutrient recovery innovations and matured research and technical development results that are near close to being put into practice, but not sufficiently known or used by practitioners. The approach is 'bottom-up' and during this one-day event, the focus will be put on the most urgent needs of farmers. The demand-driven innovations for agriculture-related to crop production are “ready for practice” and commercial market introduction, that is supporting the interest and benefits of the users and farmers.
All the NUTRIMAN web Farmer Platform nutrient recovery product and technology innovations are demonstrating full compliance with the new EU Fertilizing Products Regulations EU 2019/1009, which will be implemented from July 16, 2022, and linked to EIP-AGRI and ensure larger willingness to adopt innovations and improve multiplicator effects.
Highlights for NUTRIMAN results and impacts:
- Collection and distribution of easily accessible practice-oriented knowledge on the N/P recovery thematic area, including delivering “practice abstracts” in eight languages in the common EIP-AGRI format and audio-visual materials;
- Conserving the practical knowledge for the coming ten years beyond the project period >2031 and using the main trusted dissemination channels which farmers/foresters consult most often, and also serve education and training purposes;
- Increasing the flow of practical information between farmers in Europe in a geographically balanced way, creating spill-overs and taking account of the differences between territories; and
- Achieving greater user acceptance of collected Farmer Platform solutions on the NUTRIMAN web www.nutriman.net and more intensive dissemination of existing knowledge.
During the event, on September 16, 2021 the NUTRIMAN results and future opportunities will be presented.
If you are interested in nutrient recovered products and technologies we are warmly inviting you to join our event. The registration is free of charge but it is mandatory to register. You will receive the MS teams link to join by email before the event.
