  • The Forum is a platform open to all parties interested in specific training in European Union projects.
  •  LIFE NextFUMIGREEN participates in the event with the Finnova Foundation, partner of the project.

 Brussels, 4 April 2024. LIFE NextFUMIGREEN has been present last 4th April at the Youth in Training Meeting held in Brussels with the Finnova Foundation, partner of the project. The event was a unique opportunity to learn about the different projects co-financed by the European Union funds. 

LIFE NextFUMIGREEN aims to develop natural fumigants to replace chemical biofumigants in greenhouses and to promote biodiversity and food security. Yolanda Durán Piñero, journalist of Finnova, explained the main aspects of the project, which can evolve thanks to the awareness, training and professionalization of agricultural professionals.

The meeting at Finnova’s headquarters in Brussels was a unique opportunity to inform young people about the benefits of a project like LIFE NextFUMIGREEN, which also foresees the improvement of food security as a result of residue-free food, and positive effects on biodiversity and climate change. 


The European project LIFE NextFUMIGREEN actively promotes food safety by developing natural fumigants from plant extracts to control pests in intensive horticultural crops under glass. With the leadership of Fumihogar and with the collaboration of the Foundation for Agricultural Auxiliary Technologies, the Finnova Foundation, B&B Asesores Auditores Ambientales, Comercial Química Masso and BrioAgro Tech, the project has a total budget of 2,758,921.01 €, 60% subsidised by the LIFE Programme.
