Summary of Lecture

The role of ISC on world citrus industry

The International Society of Citriculture (ISC) is a permanent non-profit organization created in 1970 by citrus-oriented scientists and other interested professionals. The objective of the ISC is to strengthen internationally science and technology for the benefit of the worldwide citrus industry. The development of technology and expertise within the citrus production chain has supported the increase in production and the industry´s expansion, gaining social and economical importance. These new demands have brought new challenges that will not be solved under the assumption of isolated and static systems. Therefore, the ISC has fostered the coordination of the world production chain in the search for academic and technological issues that lead to efficiency of production and consumption of citrus and related products by organizing the international citrus congress and other meetings. The conference in 2016 will highlight achievements and prospect the Society’s role on this changing business.
