IIRB Congress 2018

IIRB Congress 2018

The IIRB (roughly translated to International Institute of Sugar Beet Research) Congress is a biannual event, which, sitting at the airport before catching the flight there, seems to be a standard academic conference with the very specific focus of sugar beets. NBR of course has strong ties to the organization, so we’re all going. I feel particularly lucky to be attending given it’ll be an awesome source of knowledge and inspiration, and given that I don’t have anything to present. Lucky the ‘no data, no conference’ rule of some Institutes is, in the eyes of NBR, heavily outweighed by the other benefits of attending this particular event.

Below are my Tweated highlights from the Congress. For more twitter about it, search for #IIRB or #IIRB2018.
