VI World Congress on Quinoa
III International Symposium on Andean Grains 2017


21st to 24th march 2017 - National University of the Altiplano - Puno


The congress

Vision

To be an international platform that effectively promotes the scientific and technical progress of the biodiversity of Andean grains, with cultural identity and in harmony with the environment and the communities that preserve them.

Mission

To facilitate the dissemination of new global technical-scientific developments, in order to improve the integration of the various stakeholders related to Andean grains and promote business, with emphasis on family farming.

Objectives

Keep the largest possible number of stakeholders in the Andean grains value chain informed of worldwide developments in the field of technical-scientific research related to the various aspects of these crops (genetic and agronomical resources, added value, market, others) and encourage more interaction between them, in order to strengthen the respective food processing systems and help consolidate the development of these crops.

Make these foods more visible, mainly taking cultural, nutritional and gastronomic aspects into consideration, in order to improve and boost global trade in these species and help reduce hunger and poverty, particularly in Andean highland communities.
