For the third time since the creation of the EAPR, France is honoured to welcome the 20th Triennial Conference of the European Association for Potato Research.

After Brest in 1969, Paris in 1993, we have chosen a place of exception to celebrate the 60th birthday of our Association that is Versailles.

Today, with worldwide population increase and environmental constraints, Potato (is) facing global challenges! But the crop still has many valuable resources to face the future!

The Conference aims to look ahead by providing sustainable solutions and determining in the medium term the top priority areas. Within this scope, the Organising Committee is expecting a large and diversified range of participants. Whether you are involved in fundamental or applied research, in extension or technical activities or from private companies covering the whole potato sectors, your contribution will be much appreciated.

Therefore, the latest innovative knowledge and research will be highlighted such as integration of genomic advances, integrated Pest Management scheme, improvement of Decision Support Systems and Precision Agriculture for more cost effective or sustainable practices, safer and healthier products for consumers and environment….

To optimise communication, the participants will enjoy an ideal site. The Congress Center in Versailles provides up-to-date facilities for oral presentations and interpersonal exchanges. Its size and configuration are well adapted to provide participants with great opportunities of exchanges and networking. These will be pursued during the scientific and professional excursions where participants will be given the opportunity to discover the different facets of the French potato sector in their original environment.
