Genetic Diversity - key to transitions in agriculture and forestry

You are kindly invited by the Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN) to join our event on 15 March 2023. This event will focus on the importance of conservation and access to genetic diversity in relation to the major challenges and transitions that agriculture and forestry are currently facing, such as climate change, biodiversity loss and excessive use of agrochemicals.

Organised by Centre for Genetic Resources, The Netherlands

Wed 15 March 2023 12:00 to 18:00

Venue Omnia

Genetic diversity is the backbone of agriculture, forestry and the diversity of healthy food on our plate. There is a need to maintain access to a broad genetic resources base for future breeding, research and utilisation. Providing well-adapted and efficient breeds and varieties will support the development of  resilient and sustainable agrifood and forestry systems. We would like to foster dialogue on priorities and needs and discuss our respective contributions to the transition in agriculture and forestry.   

With a networking lunch, three inspiring keynote speeches and eight interactive workshops, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to connect with colleagues, learn about new developments and ask our experts all sorts of questions about their activities and research.
