With the theme "Challenges for sustainable production in Mercosur", the technical program will address issues related to the current technological challenges of production systems, to new opportunities that are emerging for the production chain, with, for example, sustainability as a driver for opening new markets, inserting the chain into the bioeconomy era, advances in the area of genomic editing and other emerging and disruptive technologies that can add value, improve efficiency and profitability, among others.
