Euro-BioImaging User Forum: Understanding Plant Biology

Published: 2023-06-28

The next Euro-BioImaging User Forum will take place on Thursday, October 12, 2023, from 2 pm-5 pm CEST. The topic is "Understanding plant biology." This event will highlight how cutting-edge imaging technologies can support research into the structure and function of plants, shed light on plant health, resilience and adaptability, and help answer agroecology-related research questions. We will showcase the specific expertise available at our Nodes across Europe through case studies presented in tandem with the research community and provide information on funding opportunities for agroecology-related research projects via the AgroServ project.
