Scientists at different stages of their professional career, from academia, business, government and NGOs, gathered in Ljubljana to discuss the strategies for improvement of pesticide risk assessment procedures in order to guarantee protection of European herpetofauna inhabiting agricultural landscapes. A lot of interesting networking activities were planned to take place throughout the next 12 months, including meetings, workshops, training schools and short-term scientific missions.
