The Conference will offer the opportunity to:
– present and share the latest research experiences, new approaches and technologies in wheats research,
– highlight “what” the sustainable wheat production problems are and “how” they can be solved,
– celebrate the achievements of women working on wheat and related species.
Wheat varieties are going to face increasing challenges, including climate changes, production must be economically and ecologically sustainable, harvest must be safe and possess nutritional and technological qualities. Women are deeply engaged in this endeavor.
