#UKPlantSciPresents webinar series

September 28 @ 3:00 pm - December 7 @ 4:30 pm

The fourth season of the #UKPlantSciPresents webinar series runs from September 28th – December 21st 2021.

The series promotes excellence in UK plant science and each webinar features two speakers who will talk for 25minutes allowing 10 minutes for delegate questions. They take place at 3pm BST or GMT (after October 2021).

The series promotes outputs from scientists at any career stage so we encourage applications from people to present their research. Please contact Geraint Parry if you would like to participate. All webinars will be posted on the AAB YouTube channel. Past #UKPlantSciPresents can be viewed on the GARNet YouTube channel.

The webinars will be hosted using the AAB Zoom account, will be free to attend but pre-registration is required.
