The GPZ Symposium 2020 is hosted by the
University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna
Institute of Biotechnology in Plant Production and Institute of Plant Breeding

The GPZ (Society for Plant Breeding, Gesellschaft für Pflanzenzüchtung e.V.) holds general assemblies and scientific conferences in two-year intervals. During the preceding conference, 28.2. – 2.3.2018 in Werningerode, Germany it was decided that the following event will be held in Tulln, Austria, and organized by the plant breeding groups at BOKU. With great enthusiasm we take over this duty and will do our best to make this plant breeding symposium in February 2020 a success story. Symposium motto: DIGITAL BREEDING.
