The Eucarpia Fruit Section and the Bologna University are pleased to announce the XIV International Eucarpia Symposium on Fruit Breeding and Genetics which will take place on 14-18 June, 2015 in Bologna.
Bologna is an important and lively city, centrally located in Northern Italy, rich in history, cultural attractions and gastronomy, easy to reach by train, car or plane.

The Eucarpia Symposium is the best place to show and discuss about the more advanced achievements in fruit tree breeding and genetics, as demonstrated by the interest and attendance to the previous symposia.
The conference is hosted by Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, the first university of the western world, founded in 1088.
Bologna University is ancient but with modern facilities. The conference site is Building A at “Belmeloro Complex”, in the heart of the University district.

Scientists, students and stakeholders are invited to join the conference and share not only their ideas and current achievements but also their valuable experience, contributing to the enrichment of the international community.
