International Conference “Potato futures: impact of hybrid varieties”

When:Mo 30-11-2020 10:00 - 17:00

On November 30, 2020 the University of Groningen (RUG), the Rathenau Instituut, Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the hybrid potato breeding firm Solynta and Netherlands Food Partnership (NFP) are organizing the international conference “Potato futures: impact of hybrid varieties”.

The conference is built around the Potarei project, which was initiated by researchers from Wageningen University, the Rathenau Instituut and the University of Groningen, with active participation of the company Solynta. The project focused on conditions for a responsible development of hybrid potato that should benefit “the productivity, sustainability and diversity of the current potato production systems”.

The conference offers a programme in which the insights from the Potarei project are brought together, compared and contrasted with the views and experiences of breeders, stakeholders and policy makers in a national and international context.
