alexa European Association For Potato Research:

OMICS International organises 3000+ Global Conferenceseries Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

European Association For Potato Research:

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:

  • To promote the exchange of general and scientific information relating to all facets of potato growing and utilization between various countries;
  • To assist and encourage international cooperation in this field.

 

From its establishment EAPR has been very much increased by the activities of the Sections that perform the invaluable function to promote interchanging knowledge within specific disciplines. The association has five sections such as, pathology and pestsbreeding and varietal assessment, agronomypost harvestvirology and physiology. Meetings of the sections are organized regularly to discuss the results of research and problems. For the study of special problems, standardizing methods of research or terminology, and for many other scientific purposes they set up working groups.

 

ACTIVITIES:

The Association organizes a conference in every three years in a different European country. The opportunities to engage in every type of work related to potato crop and meet colleagues from all over the world, for those interested in the potato crop are offered by the conferences. The Association publishes the journal ’Potato Research’ which includes different scientific contributions on both applied and fundamental research on potatoes.

 

European Association of Potato Research was established on 1955.
