The JKI’s Institute for Breeding Research on Fruit Crops (Dresden, Germany) organizes the XVI Eucarpia Symposium on Fruit Breeding and Genetics in close collaboration with the Czech Research and Breeding Institute of Pomology Holovousy Ltd. (Holovousy, Czech Republik) under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding (Eucarpia).
The world's leading independent organization of horticultural scientists.
The International Society for Horticultural Science - in short ISHS – is a truly global network comprising over 70,000 individuals, universities, governments, institutions, libraries and commercial companies, thousands of whom joined as Individual Members, in addition to a substantial number of Institutional Members and some 50 Member Countries/Regions. It is a major source of up-to-date information on global horticultural research. ISHS aims to promote research in all branches of horticulture. It encourages the development of international co-operation, bringing together scientific and technical professionals to stimulate, facilitate and co-ordinate research and scientific activities on a global scale.

EUCARPIA aims to promote scientific and technical co-operation in the field of plant breeding in order to foster its further development. To achieve this purpose, the Association arranges and sponsors meetings of members, to discuss general or specific problems.
EUCARPIA organizes open conferences and colloquia throughout Europe each year. Founded in 1956, EUCARPIA, a non profit organization, can look back on considerable contributions to improving international contacts in plant breeding research for more than fifty years. Nowadays EUCARPIA is more active than ever before with more than a thousand members of various nationalities and interests.
