Plant pathologists and plant health researchers from around the world will meet to discuss their latest research as well as current and future issues facing plant health experts. Our host, the French Phytopathological Society, has set an exciting and challenging theme for the congress, “One Health for all plants, crops and trees”. This topic promises to provide a broad platform for talks, posters, and discussions that consider the integral nature of plant health with human, animal and environmental health.
The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. Plant Health and Plant Pathology are however usually not included into this definition. ICPP2023 will promote the integration of Plant Health & Plant Pathology into the One Health concept!
