Since March 2021 EPSO organises the EPSO Plant Science Seminar aimed at the Plant Science community and its stakeholders. The seminar is held online each third Thursday of the month at three (CET). 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. Each seminar focuses on a different science topic.

EPSO organises workshops bringing distant disciplines together and fostering new promising research areas, they became visionary and high-quality think-tanks 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 makers. You find the WG meetings and workshops on the Working Group pages.

In addition, the EPSO Working Groups organize their Working Group meetings.

From 2012 to 2021 EPSO and FESPB joined their conferences which were then held as a biannual conference. The most recent one was online (Turin) in June 2021.

Between 2002 and 2013 EPSO organised a biannual conference which became the premier plant science meetings in Europe.

The goal of the Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, in sustainability producing food, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and all of the non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.

Fascination of Plants Days took place in 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 with thousands of events across the world.  The FoPD is now bi-annual – read the success stories from 2017 and 2019. In-between sporadic events take place in some countries.

The next official Fascination of Plants Day will exceptionally take place on 18th May 2022 due to the Covid-19. Sporadic events will be organised in 2021.
