At the invitation of the coordinating department of Animal Nutrition and Animal Health the IMPRO Consortium met on 08 and 09 September 2016 for internal reflection on results and the course of the project as well as a public final workshop for dissemination and discussion. The meeting was held at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU in Brussels. 22 researchers involved in the project from 6 European countries discussed future activities to foster the application of the systemic IMPRO approach to reduce prevalence of production diseases (not only in organic farming) in agricultural science and farm practice.

The following day results of the project were presented and discussed with a group of stakeholders. Presentations and a brochure (360 kb) on main results are available at
