  1. I would like to participate the Fertinnova conference in October in Almeria, Spain.

    Can this project maybe pay for my registration, lunches, tour, travel and accommodation?

    I can send my abstract, if I will get travel support.

    1. Dear Margit,

      Unfortunately, FERTINNOWA is not possible to provide financial support for abstract contributions.

      We hope that you will manage to secure a travel grant from an external body.

  2. Estoy interesado en participar en la exhibición. Veo que su valor es de 500 Euros.
    Deseo saber si esta tarifa cubre también la inscripción para la participación en la conferencia mediante la presentación de un abstract…?

    1. Dear Felipe,

      Apologies for not answering earlier. Exhibitors in the technology market will not have to pay an additional fee for an abstract submission. ALL exhibitors will have few minutes to introduce their technologies during the interactive tours followed by discussions with the audience. However, we strongly encourage technology providers to submit research-based abstracts for an oral or poster presentation. The scientific comittee will inform you about the outcomes on the 1st of September.

      Even though you won’t have to pay an abstract submission fee, please use the online platform for your submission.

      Don’t hesitate to contact us for further information

  3. Sra Eleftheria Stavidrou.

    Deseamos saber cual es el trámite necesario para llevar desde Colombia, una máquina de fertirrigación para ser exhibida en la conferencia. Sus dimensiones son 100 cm de ancho por 60 cm de fondo y 50 cm de altura. Su peso aproximado 15 kg. Consta de una bomba de 0.5 HP, unos tubos de PVC, dos cajas de controles eléctricos y algunos otros accesorios. Se debe realizar algún trámite aduanero….?
    Por su cooperación Muchas Gracias.
