IAPB 2018, to be held at the Convention Centre, Dublin, will bring into focus advances in science and technology tackling the growing challenges to provide food for the world’s burgeoning population. Conference themes will include topics in Food Security, Plant Breeding Techniques, Propogation, Plant Microbiome and Pathology, Public Understanding of Science, as well as novel bioproducts such as biofuels/bioplastics and biopharmaceuticals.

“Global climate change, loss of biodiversity, reduced land and water availability, large scale food waste and emerging pests and pathogens are amongst many of the challenges facing us today,” comments Congress Chairperson Barbara Doyle Prestwich, President of the International Association for Plant Biotechnology (IAPB).

“To achieve global food security, in an increasingly insecure world, demands cooperative effort between the public and private sector and strong commitment from Governments worldwide to invest in innovative research and development in areas such as Plant Science.

“It has been almost 25 years since this symposium was last held in Europe and we are excited to be bringing this meeting to a world class venue in the city of Dublin for the 14th IAPB quadrennial symposium from August 19th to 24th 2018 where we promise you a truly memorable experience,” she added.

Abstracts are still being accepted although must be submitted online by the deadline of February 28. For details contact
