Register for the 7th EPSO Seminar for the Plant Science community – the 18th November seminar will focus on “Use of Diverse Species as Crops”

We would like to announce the seventh of our new European-wide seminar series by the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO) and aimed at the Plant Science community and its stakeholders. Our aim is to provide a stimulating set of seminars once a month on a hot and/or emerging topic in plant science, giving the floor to both eminent world leaders and talented up-and-coming early career researchers.

There will be three short presentations

“Biodiversity with underutilized crops in Europe: challenges, strategies and benefits” by Assistant Prof Marta Vasconcelos, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Porto, Portugal

“Contributions of crop diversity to food security and resilience” by Dr Delphine Renard, CEFE CNRS, Montpellier, France
