Past events

The 8th annual meeting of AMAIZING was held from 19 – 21 November 2019 in Grenoble, France.

These annual events are a chance for project partners to meet and present the undertaken actions in the past year, and to plan the next ones for the upcoming year. The AMAIZING project will come to an end, on 31 December 2020 and it is also a great opportunity to discuss future new collaborations.

The EUCARPIA Section Maize and Sorghum together with the TUM Chair of Plant Breeding organized a conference on “Integrating quantitative and molecular genetics to develop new breeding methods in maize and sorghum” on 7 – 9 October 2019. Research and development in plant breeding has supreme relevance for securing yield and yield stability in agricultural production. It brings together molecular, quantitative and computational expertise to learn about the latest developments in maize and sorghum breeding and discuss future research needs. With the new technologies plant breeding has become more exciting and dynamic than ever.
