A networking organisation for plants-related research and impact

The Industry Club provides a forum for fundamental and applied research in plant sciences to be developed throughout the Cambridge region, between University Departments, Research Institutes and Industry. Participating organisations are encouraged to provide a designated Hub, who acts by forwarding information from each organisation, and by disseminating news of activities and information to their colleagues.

The Industry Club exists to strengthen and integrate pure and applied research in plant sciences in and around Cambridge.
The Industry Club has the following overarching aims:

- Facilitating training and career development for plant scientists

- Providing a technology pipeline for translating basic plant science into practice

- Raising the profile of plant sciences research & development

- Generating opportunities for plant sciences research in the region

- Identifying future priorities for plants as food, fuel and other products

We are co-ordinated by a Steering Committee who meet quarterly to co-ordinate activities.
