IR-4 Strategic Planning Conference: Dec. 9-10
IR-4 is holding a strategic planning conference Dec. 9-10 to obtain advice and feedback from its stakeholders, customers and partners as it drafts a five-year (2009-2013) strategic plan. The conference will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Crystal City-National Airport in Arlington, Va. According to IR-4, some of the questions to be discussed during the conference include: should the relative balance of effort and resources within existing IR-4 research programs (food, ornamental horticulture, and biopesticide) be modified and if so, how? and what role should IR-4 take in harmonizing U.S. and international regulations and crop protection chemical and biopesticide clearances?
