This international event, which takes place every four years, brings together scientists and researchers in all fields related to plant breeding. Invited speakers will present and discuss their research findings and their visions for meeting the great challenges of plant breeding in coming decades.
The congress will focus on new phenomic tools to identify crop ideotypes as well as on the implementation of the wealth of information about the plant genome in order to create novel superior cultivars. Other topics are the breeding of climate-smart cultivars and how to make the best use of the natural variation hidden in genetic resources
