31st International Horticultural Congress – Angers

The International Horticultural Congress (IHC) is the most important scientific event organised every four years since 1959 in the fields related to Horticulture* under the auspices of ISHS (International Society for Horticultural Science). ISHS is a truly global network comprising over 6,000 members. Its aim is to promote and foster research and education in horticultural science and to facilitate cooperation and knowledge transfer on a global scale through events and publications. In a different continent every 4 years (…2010 Lisbon – 2014 Brisbane – 2018 Istanbul…), IHC regroups many divisions and commissions-symposia.

The backbone of the congress will be built on four challenges:

  1. Competitiveness and skills for horticultural value chains
  2. Food, human health and well-being of citizens
  3. Sustainability of production systems
  4. Adaptation to climate changes and effect mitigation

They will be the leading topics of the four planned plenary sessions where Grand keynote speakers will be invited to bring in and express their external and critical views. These four topics will also be the common thread all along the 25 symposia. In addition, many important and topical subjects will be addressed such as: breeding, biodiversity, organic farming urban horticulture, new technologies for phenotyping, precision horticulture,…

Abstract submission is now open until Nov. 15, 2021.
