Summer School Plant Health and Quality

2-18 juillet 2018 - Angers

Summer School Plant Health and Quality
L'inscription est ouverte pour la Summer School Qualité et Santé du Végétal 2018 qui se tiendra à Angers du 2 au18 juillet 2018.

La Summer School Qualité et Santé du Végétal est organisée en partenariat avec L'Inra, l'Université d'Angers, Agrocampus Ouest, le Geves, L'Anses, l'Esa, et l'Université de Nantes.

Elle se tiendra du 2 au 18 juillet à Angers, premier pôle de recherche et formation en France sur l'horticulture et les semences, avec 400 chercheurs, 66 doctorats et 2500 étudiants en sciences des plantes.Coordonnée par Pascal Poupard et Marion Fischer-Le Saux (UMR IRHS Inra-Agrocampus Ouest-Uiversité d'Angers), la summer school comportera des classes interactives et des activités sur le terrain :
