The main objective of the workshop is to create a vibrant network of young breeders supported by experienced organic breeding mentors to create a fruitful exchange and inspiration for the next generation of organic breeders.

ECO-PB is happy to invite you to a summer school in Tuscany with young breeder – mentor workshops. The trip will take place on 1-4 June (arrival on 1 June, activities on 2-3 June, departure on 4 June).

Participants will have time to get to know RSR headquarters, discuss together in workshops, visit farms and research stations around the topic of organic breeding, and explore Florence and surroundings. And all this in the company of experts and potential mentors in cereal and vegetable breeding. You can find here our draft programme.
