Deadlines oral and poster abstracts: 31 May 2020

The European Association for Plant Breeding, is a scientific association with the primary goal of fostering international cooperation in the field of plant breeding.
Although primarily focused on Europe, Eucarpia has gained worldwide recognition and is one of a kind. About 1,000 members across the globe are active in the diverse disciplines of science-based plant breeding, including molecular genetics, practical plant breeding, variety testing and seed commerce. EUCARPIA has 8 crop specific and 3 thematic sections to build focused networks of relevant scientists and breeders from companies. Each section organizes his own meeting.

The general congress 2020
EUCARPIA’s main event – the General Congress – is held every four years at different locations. The next General Congress will take place in August 23-28th 2020 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. On this occasion, experts and researchers from all over the world will present and discuss their findings and visions for meeting the great challenges that plant breeding will face in the next decades to
integrate the many new technologies, skills and human experience into coherent breeding strategies under the theme:

Breeding: the key to innovative solutions

The conference will be organised around the themes

  • Abiotic and biotic stress tolerance
  • Breeding for alternative agricultural systems (including regulations)
  • Climate resilience and resource efficiency
  • Genomics and bioinformatics in breeding
  • New Breeding technologies (including CRISPR)

with key note lectures, oral presentations, poster displays and excursions (scientific and otherwise), a conference dinner as well as ‘topped off’ with a possibility to attend post conference excursions amongst others to the campus, departments and facilities of Wageningen University and Research. We are well
underway to compile an interesting program. We expect over 500 international participants.

Abstracts on all aspects of breeding of crop plants are welcome. They are of course linked to our crop and thematic sections.

Topics we would like to address are:

  • Abiotic and biotic stress tolerance
  • Breeding for alternative agricultural systems (including regulations)
  • Climate resilience and resource efficiency
  • Genomics and bioinformatics in breeding
  • New Breeding technologies (including CRISPR)
