CambPlants Hub

A networking organisation for plants-related research and impact

Agri-Tech East will be holding its next Young Innovators' Forum in January 2020 at the University of Cambridge's Sainsbury Laboratory and the Algal Innovation Centre.

The Sainsbury Lab is a research institute trying to clarify the regulatory systems underlying plant growth and development. Participants will be led on a tour of the facilities, and will be able to have discussions with some of the researchers.

Afterwards, participants will be shown the Algal Innovation Centre (AIC). The AIC is a Centre for Excellence with test and scale-up facilities, and connects the entire pipeline of algal research from strain selection and improvement, through harvesting and processing, to development of underpinning technology and engineering solutions. 

Further information and more accurate timings will be sent closer to the date. Participants can register for this free event, and sign up for the Young Innovator's Forum newsletter, here.
