Monday 29th June – Wednesday 1st July
This year, the Irish Plant Scientists’ Association Meeting (IPSAM) will be hosted by Queen’s University, Belfast (QUB) and the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI).
The event is being jointly organised by the Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS), the School of Biological Sciences (SBS), and AFBI’s Sustainable Agri-Food Sciences Division. The meeting has been planned to coincide with the annual AFBI Arable Crops Open day in Crossnacreevy and participants will be invited to spend an afternoon exploring the open day.
The Island of Ireland has a vibrant and wide-ranging community of researchers in the plant sciences, phytopathology, plant genetics and genomics, ecology, plant phenology, horticulture, forestry, soil and rhizosphere science. This ranges from fundamental through to applied research, and the title of this year’s meeting is Plant Our Future. The main focus of IPSAM is to firstly provide a forum to share research in the plant and crop sciences among the research community across the island of Ireland but also to foster current/future collaborations with industry stakeholders.
IPSAM also prides itself on being able to provide a forum for research postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers to present their findings to promote their future research careers.
We hope that you will join us in Belfast in June 2020
