"Beneficial Plant-Microbe Interactions"
- BeMiPlant -

October 17th to 19th, 2022


book of abstract


Welcome to the official website of the XVIII National Meeting of the Spanish Society of Nitrogen Fixation (XVIII SEFIN) and I Spanish-Portuguese Congress on Beneficial Plant-Microbe Interactions (BeMiPlant).

The present edition will be held at INIAV - Instituto Nacional de Investigação Agrária e Veterinária, I.P., in Oeiras, Portugal, from October 17th to 19th, 2022. The event is organized by SEFIN and INIAV.

The congress is open to all people working on beneficial plant-microbe associations, including researchers from public and private entities, companies and professionals interested in biological nitrogen fixation, plant-microbe interactions, and its technological applications. The event expects to congregate people such as plant microbiologists, molecular microbiologists, plant physiologists, plant geneticists, agronomists, microbial taxonomists, ecologists. The participation of graduate and post-graduate students is happily welcome.

Congress organization therefore invites you to enrol in a event where the latest achievements on research and innovation on beneficial plant-microbe interactions will be discussed under an holistic approach.

Main Topics

The main topics covered at this event are:

  • Diversity and ecology of plant beneficial microbes
  • Microbial inoculants and applications in agriculture and forestry
  • Beneficial microbes for soil and environment protection
  • Nitrogen-fixing systems
  • PGPR and bacterial endophytes
  • Mycorrhizae and other beneficial plant-fungi associations
  • Genetics and “omics” of plants and associated microbes
