10th International Symposium on Vaccinium and Other Superfruits
With this symposium, entitled “10th International Vaccinium & Other Superfruits Symposium and Exhibition” we will not only have a reason to celebrate the fact that this decennial occurrence takes place in Maastricht. We will also celebrate the very first inter-association activity between ISHS and IFU.
In view of the current developments taking place in the area of vaccinium species, other superfruits and soft fruits, which all show similarities with respect to crop sciences, processing technologies, logistics, health and business, the ISHS Vaccinium Species Working Group of the Vine and Berry Fruits Section, the ISHS Commission Fruits and Vegetables and Health, and the ISHS Commission Plant Genetic Resources are very happy to collaborate in this event with the IFU Scientific and Technical Commission.
Through this alignment mutual interests will be scoped that cover the entire chain from growth, harvest, processing, product development and finally consumption and related health effects.
The symposium organization is a joint activity between Maastricht University, Wageningen University, ISHS and IFU.
We look forward to seeing you in 2012 in Maastricht!
President of the Organizing committee
