First held in 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 in the field of plant science and talented up-and-coming early career researchers to present their research to an international audience and to network with potential collaborators. Each 90 minute seminar focuses on a different science topic with typically three speakers presenting their work followed by questions and answers. 

EPSO organises workshops bringing distant disciplines together and fostering new promising research areas. These are visionary and high-quality fora acting as a 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 makers. You can find the WG meetings and workshops on the Working Group pages.

EPSO Working Groups organise their Working Group meetings by subject area.

From 2012 to 2021 EPSO and FESPB joined their conferences which were 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 event 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 sustainabile food production, and also for horticulture, forestry, and all 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, 2019 and 2022 with thousands of events across the world.  The FoPD is a biennial event – read the success stories from 20172019 and 2022. In-between sporadic events take place in some countries.

Fascination of Plants Day 2024 takes place on 18th May with events happening world-wide through to the end of November 2024.
