Plants for the Future’s annual General Assembly 2022


Plant ETP held its annual General Assembly (GA) on 30th March 2022. The Chair of our Board of Directors, Daniel Azevedo, kindly hosted the on-site part of the GA at the COPA-COGECA offices.

During the GA, it was decided, among other things, to transform from a national (ASBL) to an international (AISBL) non profit organisation. In this way, Plant ETP can better reflect its diverse and international members.

Plant ETP members also thanked Ernst van den Ende for his many years of contribution as a member of the Board of Directors, and welcomed José Luis Riechmann as a new Board member.

The members also discussed Plant ETP’s activites and its outlook for 2022/23.


After the closed part of the GA, Plant ETP hosted open sessions on New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) and Plant Reproductive Material (PRM). See here for more details on the open sessions.

Thanks everyone for a great meeting! Looking forward to more in person events in the coming months.
