SQP Symposium

For its 13th symposium which will be held on 2 May 2019 at the Montreal Botanical Garden, the Société québécoise de phytotechnologie will take the audience off the beaten path by deploying a programmation on the theme of innovation. What’s new in the world of phytotechnologies? What discoveries push the limits of the infrastructures that we know? What new things can we expect in the coming years? Local and international speakers will present their expertise, from cutting-edge research to large-scale application. Two new features this year: a prize for the best phytotechnological project in Quebec and a scientific poster session. The annual symposium of the Société québécoise de phytotechnologie is its most important event, bringing together high-caliber speakers and an audience of professionals from the municipal, provincial, federal, private and communal sectors, as well as researchers and students.
