The conference, which will focus on issues such as legume quality and nutrition, farming systems, abiotic and biotic stress responses and breeding, new ‘omics’ resources for legumes, and legume genetic resources, will also host the final meeting of the ABSTRESS project, as well as the annual meetings of the LEGATO and EUROLEGUME projects.

The health and environmental benefits, as well as the marketing of legumes will be transversal topics throughout the conference.
