The seminar entitled: "Sustainable Beekeeping and Honey Production in the European Union" was organized as part of the activities within the framework of the Jean Monnet Module devoted to “European Sustainable Values in the Common Agricultural Policy" taking place at the University Business Academy in Novi Sad. The Jean Monnet module "European Sustainable Values in the Common Agricultural Policy" encompasses the latest research and knowledge transfer on the application of sustainable values in agriculture in the field of European Union studies. By studying the EU agriculture model and sustainable economic, social, and environmental values, the module will also lead to a better understanding of the future obligations of the Republic of Serbia arising from the opening of negotiations under Chapter 11, namely, Agriculture and Rural Development.
