EPSO Workshops and Events


EPSO organises top level workshops with a bottom up principle bringing distant disciplines together to break down barriers between disciplines and foster new promising research areas.

EPSO workshops have established a reputation as visionary and high quality think-tank in emerging areas of plant science. Workshop participants compile a white paper defining prioritised objectives that are then communicated to the European Commission and national policy markers. The next workshop will take place in September 2009 and the topic discussed will be plant productivity.

EPSO welcomes scientists to submit an outline for a workshop they would like to organise. Click here for the application form

EPSO also organise brainstorms at short notice. An EPSO Brainstorm is often a much smaller meeting with the aim of exploring a relativly new area which could be the focus of an EPSO workshop in the not too distant future.
