78th IIRB Congress

The 78th IIRB Congress will take place from 21st to 23rd June 2022 at the Wallonia Conference Center in Mons, Belgium. The congress will be held in collaboration with the Belgian research institute IRBAB and will mark the 90th anniversary of both IIRB and IRBAB. 

The congress will open with the session ‘Agriculture’s strength adapting to climatic and environmental challenges’, presenting Belgian sugar beet research. The following five technical sessions will inform on different topical issues in sugar beet cultivation. Two poster sessions with 120 posters will allow participants to discuss the presented results with the poster authors. A field day with a visit to Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, a faculty of the University of Liège, with a guided tour at the new research unit Terra, will round off the programme.

We expect an international audience of 300 participants to attend the congress, representing research institutions, sugar beet growers' associations, breeding companies, sugar industry and further institutions in the upstream sector.

Online registration is open as of now until 15th March 2022. You may profit from reduced fees when registering by 31st January 2022.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 78th IIRB Congress in Mons.
