Call for abstracts! EFIMED-EUFORGEN-EVOLTREE joint events
For its 2018 Annual Meeting, EVOLTREE has joined forces with EUFORGEN and the EFI Mediterranean Facility to bring you two side events at the EFI's 2018 Annual Conference in Sardinia, Italy in September.
Tuesday 25 September 2018 ABSTRACT DEADLINE 15 JULY!
Forests and agroforests play a vital role in the lives of people and are key to meeting several of the Sustainable Development Goals. New genetic and genomics approaches, including new-generation breeding strategies, have great potential to harness natural genetic variation to promote forest health and productivity, in particular in the face of global disturbances, such as climate change, land fragmentation and emerging pests and diseases.
This joint EVOLTREE and EUFORGEN seminar will connect forest genetic resources and sustainable development by exploring theoretical approaches to applied breeding and genomics.
Call for abstracts and registrations are open!
Wednesday 26 September 2018 ABSTRACT DEADLINE 6 JULY!
In this side event, EFIMED, EUFORGEN and EVOLTREE bring you a fascinating exploration of some key Mediterranean species.
The morning session looks into the genetics, management and uses of stone pine and cork oak. In the afternoon, in collaboration with European Hardwoods Innovation (EHIA) and
the French Institute of Technology for Forest-based and Furniture Sectors (FCBA), we examine the role of Mediterranean oaks in the forest-based bioeconomy.
There will be an open call for presentations and posters, group discussion towards a COST Action proposal and more.
