17th EUCARPIA Meeting Genetics and Breeding of Capsicum and Eggplant

11-13th September 2019 - Avignon, France

The 17th International Eucarpia Meeting on Genetics and Breeding of Capsicum and Eggplant “CapsEgg2019” will be held at the Popes’ Palace in Avignon, France, on 11-13th September 2019.

Eucarpia ( is an association of scientists and breeders which, since its creation in 1956, promotes in Europe scientific and technical collaboration in the field of plant genetics and breeding, in particular through the organization of congresses. These congresses, first limited to participants of European countries, became progressively international and renowned. The vegetables section, one among the eleven Eucarpia sections, is organized by crop groups, such as the Capsicum and Eggplant group, the first congress of which happened in 1971 in Italy. The 16th congress occurred in 2016 in Hungary (, with participants originating from 29 countries.

The Congress Scientific Committee includes French and international scientists, leaders of different research topics of Capsicum and Eggplant Genetics and Breeding.

The Congress provisional program consists of 5 scientific sessions :

  • Genetic Resources, Diversity and Domestication,
  • Resistance and Tolerance to Biotic and Abiotic Stresses,
  • Nutritional value, quality traits and yield,
  • Biotechnology and Genomics,
  • Pre-breeding and Breeding
