Photosynthesis 2030+ Webinars

Photosynthesis 2030+ is a webinar discussion group that takes place on the first Tuesday of each month.

The aim of the webinar programme is to communicate the state of the art in photosynthesis research, facilitate communication and promote collaboration within the photosynthesis community towards the common goal of improving photosynthesis in crop plants.

These webinars introduced by Dr Louisa Dever will explore different elements of photosynthesis from leading research groups. These contributions will help in developing the Photosynthesis Research Roadmap for 2030+  as part of the CAPITALISE project.
