Events endorsed by OPERA

The 14th Symposium of Pesticide Chemistry was edited by the Institute of Agriculture and Environmental Chemistry of the Catholic University and was held in Piacenza- Italy, from 30th August- 1st September 2011. General and special subjects regarding to environmental fate of pesticides, modelling, risk characterization, risk prevention and mitigation were covered. Invited speakers identified new problems and areas required research. Platform presentations, poster sessions and plenary discussions set the stage for an overview of current progress in research. Regulatory issues were also considered. The background for constructive interaction between researchers working in the field of study: the control and forecasting of pesticide fate in the “air, plant, soil, biota and water system” was set up. The 14th edition of the Symposium was subdivided into sessions dedicated to laboratory and field studies, modeling, risk characterization, risk prevention and risk mitigation, regulatory procedures and policy issues. The program was of interest to environmental scientists from research organizations, academia, industry, governmental and NGOs.

The main themes addressed were:

  • Laboratory Studies
  • Field Studies
  • Modelling
  • Risk Characterization
  • Risk Prevention and Risk Mitigation
