    Scientific visits


    This Summer School Plant Health and Quality has been selected in the frame of the call for projects "Ecoles d’été France Excellence 2018" launched by the French Embassy in China. A group of Chinese students will attend the Summer School. Their program is a bit extended (26 June - 18 July) with French classes.
