We are happy to announce that the next General Assembly of the GPZ in combination with the German Plant Breeding Conference will take place at Geisenheim University from 19-21 March 2024.

Under the title „Accelerating Crop Genetic Gain“, there will be a high-quality scientific program highlighting the latest developments and innovations in plant breeding that can help to deliver accelerated rates of genetic gain to sustain and improve future agriculture.

There will be high-quality research contributions and networking events that bring together academic breeding research and commercial plant breeding. We are very excited to announce that we could already confirm keynote talks by Mark Cooper (University of Queensland, AU); Agnieszka Golicz (Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen; DE), Hans Daetwyler (Bayer CropScience, NL); Daniela Bustos-Korts (Universidad Austral de Chile, CL); Dorcus Gemenet (CGIAR-NARS, MX). Further keynote speakers will be announced soon.

In addition, for the first time, a 1.5-day "Next Generation Breeders" workshop for doctoral candidates and postdocs will be held from 17-18 March, i.e. directly before the GPZ main conference. This is intended to offer the “breeders of tomorrow” a platform for scientific exchange and networking with invited experts. In this context, the "young GPZ" will also be formed with elected representatives who will be admitted to the GPZ board in the future.

Please mark the 19-21 March 2024 for the German Plant Breeding Conference 2024, and the 17-18 March 2024 for the Next Generation Breeders-Workshop in your calendars. Further details will be shared shortly
