The European Association for Potato Research (EAPR) has officially announced that registration for its 2024 Triennial Conference is now open. This prestigious event, set to take place in July 2024, will be hosted by Norway for the very first time. The organizing committee, under the leadership of EAPR President, Arne Hermansen, is committed to making this edition “the best Triennial conference ever.”
The conference’s theme, “Sustainable Potato Production: Advances and Applications of Potato Research“, promises to delve deep into the latest advancements in potato research. With 12 keynotes already scheduled, attendees can expect a comprehensive program that spans 10 scientific sessions. These sessions will cover a wide range of topics pertinent to potato cultivation and research. The scientific committee, a blend of Norwegian scientists and experts from across Europe, has been meticulously curating the content to ensure relevance and depth.
In addition to the sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to embark on a full-day excursion to explore potato-growing regions in Norway. This will be complemented by social activities to foster networking and collaboration. For those interested, there’s also a potential post-conference tour to the arctic potato-growing areas of northern Norway.
Given the current favorable exchange rate between the Norwegian Krone (NOK) and the Euro, early registration is advised for the best value. The organizing committee has worked diligently to keep costs low, ensuring maximum participation.
For those looking to host separate workshops or network meetings, the conference venue is available for bookings one or two days prior to the main event. Interested parties are encouraged to reach out to Arne Hermansen for further discussions.
EAPR urges all members and interested parties to spread the word about the conference within their networks. For more details and to register, visit the official website at https://nibio.no/eapr2024.
