For the first time in 2 years, the Healthy Crops Consortium was finally able to meet again in person. The "Haus der Universität" in Düsseldorf was chosen as the venue for the 2022 annual meeting, which was attended by the majority of the project members. In order to allow all members who could not attend in person to be digitally present, the meeting was live shared and recorded. But not only the presentations of the individual participants, as well as the subsequent discussions inspired those present. Furthermore, there was a poster presentation on various project contents, as well as an excursion to the Botanical Garden of the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf.
