INFO COVID-19

Due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) coupled with the feedback received from our recently conducted survey, we have taken the decision to postpone the IV. International Symposium on Horticulture in Europe (SHE), the V. International Humulus Symposium (IHS) and the VIII. International Symposium on Human Health Effects of Fruits and Vegetables (FAV Health) in Stuttgart to March 8 – 12, 2021. The rapid global escalation of the virus with the subsequent travel and other restrictions being imposed have made it impossible to hold these symposia with international attendance at the originally scheduled date in June 2020.

These symposia are much more than a great scientific event about horticulture. It is a unique opportunity to meet, take part in an active exchange of knowledge, get in touch with old friends, make new friends, and take home ideas and techniques that can be put into practice immediately. This is not practicable at the moment but will certainly be so once the global health situation has normalized.

The planning and preparation for these symposia to dates will not go to waste. We will use the time to make the event even better and an unforgettable experience for you and our community as a whole.
