ICABR 2020 in Argentina cancelled

We invite all for the 2021 ICABR 25th anniversary conference in Ravello, Italy. More details will follow soon.

The ICABR Board of Directors and the Local Planning Committee have been closely monitoring the evolving Covid-19 pandemic situation and the global travel restrictions. We regret to announce that it will have to cancel the in-person conference scheduled for October 12 -15, 2020 in Cordoba, Argentina. Instead, we are initiating a series of free webinars and exploring more possibilities for online presentations and/or webinars in the fall. We will keep you informed about these.


Two ICABR webinars have been planned in collaboration with other international organizations. The first two have been organized with IFAD, FAO, IFPRI, and the World Bank and will be held on June 12th and June 19th. The topic of these seminars is “Bridging Research and Policy Challenges on Covid-19: Value Chains, Food Security, Women, Youth and Vulnerable Groups.”

We will send the official notification about this meeting this week. The second series of webinars beginning in July will focus on: How to Build Back Better: Increasing the Resilience of the Bioeconomy During and After Covid-19.
