EUCARPIA ( est une association de chercheurs et de  sélectionneurs qui, depuis sa création en 1956, promeut la collaboration scientifique et technique dans le domaine de l’Amélioration des plantes en Europe, en particulier via l’organisation de congrès. Ces congrès, initialement européens, sont progressivement devenus de réputation et de participation internationales. Parmi les onze sections de l’association, la section « légumes » est organisée par groupes spécialisés, comme par exemple le groupe Piment-Aubergine, dont le premier congrès a eu lieu en 1971 en Italie. Le 16ème congrès a eu lieu en 2016 en Hongrie (, et a réuni des participants originaires de 29 pays.
