The fourth EPSO Conference – which will explore the theme ‘Plants for life’ – will be held on the beautiful French Côte d’Azur, near Toulon, from 22 to 26 June 2008. The conference will address many of the challenges faced by the plant research community in an evolving world: climate change, preservation of the environment and of natural biodiversity, as well as the food and feed demands of a growing world population. Non-food crops for energy, biomaterials, biopharmaceuticals and other new products will also be an important focus of the conference.

The fourth EPSO Conference will bring together international scientists and experts who will provide insights into the most recent breakthroughs in plant science.

The conference is organised by Karin Metzlaff, EPSO Executive Director, and the local conference organiser is Hélène Lucas, Head of Genetics and Plant Breeding division, INRA, France.
