International Strawberry Symposium
1. Mai - 5. Mai
Given the SARS-CoV-2 emergency, the ninth edition of the International Strawberry Symposium, initially planned for May 2020, will take place in Rimini on 1-5 May 2021.
The decision, after much thought and with no alternatives, was taken by the event’s organisers – the Marche Polytechnic University, agricultural research council CREA and the International Society for Horticultural Science – to protect the health and safety of all participants.
Around 330 scientific works, presented by 1,000 authors from countries in every continent, had already been produced for this great convention. Furthermore, 148 talks were already planned – including 15 by invitation and 133 scientific presentations across three parallel sessions – on topics including strawberry genetics and physiology, plant defense, post-harvest, strawberry properties and the fruit’s positive effects on human health.
