What we do

To achieve our objectives CambPlants works closely with the Strategic Research Initiatives (such as GFS, CCI and SRNs), CSaP, the Bioscience Impact Team from the School of Biological Sciences among other internal & external networks. 

We do it by facilitating research collaborations, convening strategic relationships and enhancing capability among researchers through different activities and programmes.

Public Engagement - Outreach


Public understanding of science is of vital importance.  We like to get the word out that plant research helps solve global issues, such as secure supplies of food, energy and materials, and how it benefits agriculture, horticulture, forestry and environmental conservation.
