EPSO initiated the YPSA awards to encourage the development of ideas and imaginative thinking in plant sciences. 

EPSO is happy to announce the two winners of the fourth EPSO Young Plant Scientist Award: Jhon Venegas-Molina was selected for his fundamental plant research and Maria-Estefania Lopez Ortiz for her applied plant research. 

Jhon and Maria-Estefania will have the opportunity to present their research during the Science Day of the EPSO General Meeting to be held in Düsseldorf, Germany on the 30.6.2023. In addition, each awardee will receive 200 € and EPSO will cover their travel to the meeting

We would like to thank the distinguished jury members Alan Schulman (chair), Marie-Theres Hauser, Angelo Santino, Timothy George and Odd Arne Rognli. The two winners were selected from among 32 PhD students who submitted from 24 different entities and 14 countries across Europe to the EPSO YPSA call.
