The annual meeting of the European Network EuroCastanea is the most important reference for anyone (agents, transformers, producers, dealers) working in the European chestnut sector. This two-day event offers a program that simultaneously combines the strong technical character of the conferences with the technical visits, trying to meet the priorities of the moment and the advancing research and innovation into the sector. This year we are focusing on the issues of brown nut rots of chestnuts and plagues.

In 2019, the host of the X EuroCastanea Meeting are Trancoso and Penedono, two of the biggest producers’ places for the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) "Soutos da Lapa", a region combining an impressive historical heritage with the strength and the tradition of chestnuts production.
