IBMA Technical Director – Vacancy

The International Biocontrol Manufacturers’ Association is a global Association with a European focus, representing the biocontrol industry, whose members produce innovative bioprotection products based on microorganisms, semiochemicals, macroorganisms and natural substances. IBMA has more than 250 members who drive bioprotection innovation worldwide, 85% of which are SMEs.  In Europe, there are 165 members in 17 European Member States.

IBMA was established in 1995 and works with other biocontrol Associations and Bioprotection Global, the Federation of Biocontrol Associations, to build the position of bioprotection in regenerative agriculture. This is an increasingly important aspect of IBMA in the climate neutral policies of the coming decade and IBMA has an increasing role with intergovernmental organisations worldwide within this context of agricultural transition.

IBMA promotes the industry by showing that biocontrol is effective and profitable for the farmer, supports biodiversity and is a key enabler of regenerative agriculture. IBMA advocates for proportionate regulation to accelerate market access for bioprotection.

The Association is an AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) incorporated in Brussels where it has a small office.
