COLLABORATION WITH OBSERVERS

EPSO observers are involved in EPSO policy activities and events.

When EPSO produces a statement or a recommendation, prepares and holds a workshop, etc., observers can be involved in the discussions and have the opportunity to give their input. Any non-academic organisation or institution interested in plant science can apply to become an observer by simply completing the request form and sending it to the EPSO office.
