Launch - International Association for Plant Biotechnology Congress 2018
The International Association for Plant Biotechnology Congress 2018, hosted by UCC plant scientists will take place in August 2018. The event will be launched here at UCC and streamed live to members worldwide.This event will see the formal launch of IAPB2018 ahead of it taking place in Dublin in August 2018. How to feed a burgeoning world population in the face of 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. 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. Founded in 1963, the International Association for Plant Biotechnology (www.iapbhome.com ) is the largest international professional organisation representing the interests of the world- wide plant biotechnology community and has been hosting successful symposia around the world since the early 60’s. 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.
