We are pleased to announce the 25th International Eucarpia Symposium - Ornamentals Section which will take place on 28 June – 2 July, 2015 at the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO) in Melle, Belgium, close to Ghent.
“Crossing borders”, the central theme of the symposium, expresses our intention to go beyond traditional ornamental plant breeding. Recent boosts in fundamental knowledge offers opportunities for ornamentals. Interaction and discussion between plant breeders and scientists create new ideas.
We are excited that besides the lectures of leading experts also more than 120 scientific contributions from all over the world are confirmed. Parallel with the scientific sessions we scheduled two workshops. In these workshops active participation of breeding companies will be stimulated.
A post-symposium tour gives you the opportunity to discover the dynamic and innovative ornamental plant breeding industry in Belgium.
Now the registration for participation is open.
We look forward to seeing you in Belgium in 2015!
Johan Van Huylenbroeck,
