For the past three years, the BananEx project has been researching the resilience of the banana supply. There is now an invitation to the final stakeholder event.
The recent arrival of the fungal disease TR4 in Colombia makes collaboration between industry and researchers in the UK and Latin American partners even more urgent. As BananEx draws to a close, the project will bring together stakeholders to deliver key insights from the research. This event will also look ahead to how the banana industry can collectively respond to the threat of TR4 and climate impacts.
This is an opportunity to network, discover some of the latest research on the nation’s favourite fruit and look to the future of the banana trade while celebrating the work of BananEx, a £1.2 million interdisciplinary project led by Exeter University.
BananEx Final Stakeholder Event on Wednesday 26 February, 10am-4pm at Friends House in Euston, London.
Register for tickets by 10am on 5 February 2020. Places are limited, so booking early is recommended.
