SPPS Early Career PI network meeting

The Early Career PI (ECPI) network, which is supported by the Scandinavian Society for Plant Physiology (SPPS), will get together in Tromsø, Norway. The network serves as a platform for the promotion of plant science in the Nordic countries and we invite young group leaders to join this network and participate in the meeting. The meeting will consist of four sessions: two scientic sessions, one technology workshop and a round table discussion.

To apply, please submit (by e-mail to Stephan Wenkel, wenkel@plen.ku.dk):

  • a title of your presentation
  • a short scientific abstract and
  • a list of technology platforms available at your host institution

Deadline: October 15, 2016

The event is free of charge* and limited to 40 persons and we will accept participants on first-come, first-served basis. If you are a new member and have not participated in neither of the two workshops, we ask you to write an additional short statement about yourself and why you want to join the network.

*Participants need to cover their own travel and accomodation costs.
A list with hotels will be provided by the organizers
