A networking organisation for plants-related research and impact

Plants@Cambridge Annual Seminar Series

Germinating ideas for a healthier, more sustainable future

During 2020 - 2021 we will be delivering a series of virtual talks and debates where Cambridge researchers and invited experts will offer their insights into some of the latest plant research on three strategic topics:

  • Global Food Security,
  • Protecting the Environment
  • Growing a Sustainable Bioeconomy

The events in this series will bring together researchers, industry figures and policy makers to catalyse transformative thinking and advances in fundamental plant biology, and to ask how we can work together and learn from each other to facilitate better innovation for environmental and societal benefits.

For everyone interested in how plant research can tackle global challenges.
