B-THENET present at the EU Pollinator Week

On the 29th of November, from 13:30 to 15 CET we will be present in an English hybrid event hosted by the European Parliament with the topic of Improving Accessibility of Veterinary Medicinal Products to Beekeepers.

We are announcing the B-THENET Horizon Europe project event on “Supply and Use of Veterinary Medical Products in Beekeeping – Institutional Framework across the EU”, held during the EU Pollinator Week, taking place in the European Parliament.

We will discuss a topic raised directly by the European beekeepers, through a bottom-up initiative: the accessibility and supply of Veterinary Medical Products (VMPs) in beekeeping. We learnt that the different Member States implement the related European legislation in various ways, leading to divergencies in the accessibility to VMPs for the beekeepers, especially accessibility to VMPs to control the Varroa mite.

During the satellite event and its round table session both the possibilities made available by the EU legislative framework as regards accessibility of VMPs to beekeepers and national/regional implementation including the legal status of supply (Prescription-Only or non) as well as the resulting experience and good practices pointing toward a possible EU-wide harmonisation will be discussed.

We will keep you updated as regards the localization and the meeting link of the satellite event.

Stay tuned for more news!
