The 5th European-wide seminar of the new series supported by the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO) and aimed at the Plant Science community and its stakeholders.

TTT: The seminar will be held online each third Thursday of the month at three (CET).

On 16th September 2021 at 15:00 (CET) we will present three talks exploring “Control of Senescence”

Prof Astrid Wingler, University College Cork, Ireland
“Regulation of leaf senescence in response to carbon supply and temperature”




Prof Hilary Rogers, University of Cardiff, UK
“Plant organ senescence – life and death decisions”




Prof Stefan Jansson, Umeå University, Sweden
“Control of autumn senescence in aspen”




The seminars will be hosted on Zoom and last approximately 1.5 hours. Numbers will be limited to 300 attendees and therefore please register early if you would like to join. There will be ample opportunities to ask questions and join the debate. So please join us to support this new and exciting initiative for European Plant Science by following this link just prior to the start of the seminar.

EPSO members register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

In the coming months we will be on the lookout for talented plant scientists among the EPSO membership to present their findings and perspectives to the EPSO seminar series. If we approach you to talk, we hope you will be happy to support the initiative. This is a fantastic opportunity for both eminent world leaders and talented up-and-coming early career researchers to present their research to an international audience and to network with potential collaborators. If you wish to suggest a theme for one of the autumn seminars and / or nominate yourself or one of your colleagues to give a seminar, we most welcome your suggestions. First ideas for autumn include ‘alternative protein source for Europe’, ‘diverse crops for Europe’ and ‘future plant nutrition’. Please contact Tim George ([email protected]) to provide your name and potential talk title.

We look forward to seeing you all for the 5th EPSO seminar on the 17th June 2021
