Workshop on plant-environment interactions

PlantLink and Copenhagen Plant Science Center are arranging a joint workshop on 3 May 2016 at 10.00-15.00 in Copenhagen. The topic of the workshop is plant-environment interactions with focus on the three areas 1) Abiotic stress, 2) Plant-microbe or plant-plant interactions, and 3) Plant-insect interactions.

The workshop will be a great opportunity to network with colleagues in the Oresund Region.

Register for the workshop here.
Registration deadline is 27 April.
