XIX EUCARPIA Meeting of the Tomato Working Group

An important date for next year’s conference calendar has been set: The XIX EUCARPIA meeting of the Tomato Working Group will take place from May 2-4, 2018 in Naples/ Italy. 

The Section Vegetables of the European Association for Research and Plant Breeding (EUCARPIA) recently announced the event, which is hosted by the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) and the University of Naples Federico II (UNINA).

The conference will cover all relevant aspects of tomato genetics and breeding. It will provide an excellent opportunity for tomato researchers and breeders to share and discuss advances and innovations on genetic resources, crop production, fruit quality and post-harvest, biotic and abiotic stresses as well as genomics and biotechnological approaches.

TRADITOM partners are core part of the local organizing committee and the scientific programme. Local TRADITOM partner CNR is co-organising the meeting and further partners have key roles in the scientific committee (Mathilde Causse/ INRA, Silvana Grandillo/ CNR, Antonio Granell/ CSIC, Dani Zamir/ HUJI). The region around Naples is particularly relevant for the work performed in TRADITOM as Campania is an important area for the recovery and valorization of local horticultural germplasm.
