Festulolium Working Group was established during the Eucarpia FCAG Section meeting 2011 in Dublin. Prof. Mike Humphreys was elected as the first Head of the WG. 

The main aim of the WG is to build a functional platform for sharing the expertise and knowledge on the genetics, genomics, physiology, ecology and breeding of Festulolium (hybrids of Festuca and Lolium species). For that, WG workshops are organized either as separate meetings or within the FCAG section conferences.
