Save the Date - ISHS Strawberry Symposium in May 2020
GoodBerry consortium partner and work package leader Polytechnic University of Marche together with the Council for Agricultural Research and Economics (CREA), and with the ISHS are delighted to invite you at the 9th ISHS Strawberry Symposium (ISHS-ISS2020) that will take place in Rimini, May 2-6, 2020.
After the 2016 International Strawberry Symposium held in Quebec, this edition will follow the new ISHS2.0 approach, aiming to bridge the gap between academia and strawberry industries, involving everyone interested in strawberry, from research, production, industries, market and consumers.
The ISHS-ISS2020 will be accessible to experts in the world, in particular from developing countries where the strawberry production is expanding not only as an industry but also as an opportunity of rural development and improvement of quality life.
In this context UPM, as well as other GoodBerry partners (P1-UMA, P5-IFAPA, P8-INRA, P9-HGU, P11-PH, P13-Invenio, P15-Sant´Orsola) will present the GoodBerry project through the large-scale distribution of dissemination material, oral presentations and subsequent discussions.
The scientists will have the opportunity to present the most updated scientific results, to meet colleagues for further scientific and technical exchange, for developing ideas for new scientific projects and new interdisciplinary and applied collaborations.
ISHS-ISS2020 is not only Rimini. Guided Pre- and Post-tours to our Southern and Northern production areas as well as the Berry School, will let you learn about the highly diversified Italian Strawberry production system. Young scientists and technical experts will be trained on strawberry breeding and cultivation systems.
