Lecture - short description
Assoc. Prof. Anna Gorczyca is a visiting professor at the University of Zagreb in the framework of The CEEPUS network: Resilient management of bioactive compounds from plants and organic wastes in Middle-Europe. She is hosted at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Agriculture and the Department of Plant Pathology under the supervision of Prof. Edyta Đermić. The first public lecture to be delivered by Prof. Gorczyca is entitled Biological products for agriculture in Poland. The lecture will present the categorization of bioproducts for agriculture, i.e. biofertilizers, biostimulants and biological control products. A short description will be presented, as well as the measures of individual categories available on the Polish market. The summary will show the state of biological plant protection in Europe and development prospects.
Short curriculum vitae
Assoc. Prof. Anna Gorczyca earned her MSc in Plant protection (emphasis in Nematology) and her Ph.D. in Agronomy (emphasis in Mycology) at the University of Agriculture in Krakow, Poland. After completion of her degree, she joined the Department of Microbiology and Biomonitoring (formerly the Department of Agricultural Environment Protection) at the Faculty of Agriculture and Economics, UAK. She held a post-doctoral position and she started her research on the impact of nanocompounds on plants, microalgae and phytopatogenic fungi and other plant pathogens. After habilitation, in 2015, Dr. Anna Gorczyca was hired as Assoc. Prof. of the UAK. She remained active in research collaborating in several research projects (toxicological aspect of nanotechnology, use of waste for fertilization purposes, potential of plants compounds in plant protection) with colleagues from the Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences, the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn and the Franciszek Górski Institute of Plant Physiology Polish Academy of Sciences. She has authored and co-authored over 70 refereed papers, two chapters in books regarding biological plant protection and nanotechnology. She is a technical auditor at the Polish Centre for Accreditation in the Integrated Plant Production program. She is the representative of the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture and Economics for Promotion.
