From June 24 to 26, 2015, a joint event of the Working Group Plant Microbe Interaction of EUCARPIA - the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding, ECO-PB - the European Consortium for Organic Plant Breeding, and Core Organic Project COBRA (Co-ordinating Organic plant BReeding Activities for diversity) is taking place at the Technical University of Munich in Weihenstephan, near Munich.

Three different events related to plant breeding will take place:

  • On June 24 to 25, 2015, there will be meetings of different work package groups of the European Project COBRA, with the possibility of attending one of the two field tours.
