Summary Conference 

"Phosphorus Raw Materials in Visegrad Countries"

The Conference is the summary of the project.  The most important objective of the Conference is to present the issue of Phosphorus (P) scarcity in V4 and ways to prevent the insufficient amount of P in V4’economy (and thus no possibility of producing food in V4) by innovative solutions (technological, environmental, economic, and social) that can be implemented under the Circular Economy and Green Deal Strategies. This Conference aims to provide a platform presenting multidisciplinary knowledge with high scientific and practical importance, where Participants from different fields of environment (scientists, entrepreneurs, education) can come together and collaborate. Transfer of knowledge and good practices can accelerate the implementation of P recovery technologies in V4, and through this contribute to improving the quality of the environment and achieving a balance between human activities and nature.

It will be the open event. There will be a possibility to submit the poster and oral presentations by external experts. The conference will be organised as the hybrid event - face-to-face and virtual event (ONLNE). There will be no fee for participation. A book of abstracts with ISBN will be developed.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of the Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
