It is a great pleasure to announce the 14th International Turfgrass Research Conference which will be arranged by STERF and held in Copenhagen, Denmark on 10-15 July 2022.

We are pleased to announce the 14th International Turfgrass Research Conference which will take place on 10-15 July 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The overall theme of the ITRC 2022 is Development and Sustainability. The challenges for the future of the turfgrass sector are many and diverse. Climate change impacts are exceeding the worst expectations. Strong restrictions on the use of chemicals and fertilizers, and increasing pressure on natural resources (notably water, energy and land) are expected. There is an accelerating loss of ecosystem services and biodiversity in the urban landscapes. All this calls for more research and innovation for a sustainable future. The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in Agenda 2030 will constitute the conference programme framework. The conference is an arena established to exchange knowledge and experiences with the best experts in this field.

The conference theme is: Development & Sustainability

The challenges for the future of the turfgrass sector are many and diverse. Climate change impacts are exceeding the worst expectations. Strong restrictions on the use of chemicals and fertilizers, and increasing pressure on natural resources (notably water, energy and land) are expected. There is an accelerating loss of ecosystem services and biodiversity in the urban landscapes. All this calls for more research and innovation for a sustainable future.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in Agenda 2030 will constitute the conference programme framework. We have identified seven SDGs related to the turfgrass industry: SDG 3 (Good health and well-being), SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), SDG 12 (Responsible consumption and production), SDG 13 (Climate action), SDG 14 (Life below water), SDG 15 (Life on land) and SDG 17 (Partnership for the goals).

The conference is an arena established to exchange knowledge and experiences with the best experts in this field. It will bring together researchers, greenkeepers, superintendents, planning authorities, technical experts, consultants, high level turfgrass managers and top industry delegates. This will give us the best opportunities to improve and extend important international interdisciplinary collaboration, which is the only viable strategy to overcome the current challenges and create a sustainable future.
