A CLAND-SPS one-day meeting will take place on 21 April, 2020 at the Institute of Plant Sciences - Paris Saclay, located at Building 630, rue de Noetzlin, Plateau du Moulon, 91190 Gif-sur-Yvette. 

The Saclay Plant Sciences network (SPS, www.saclayplantsciences.fr), created through the French “Investments for the Future” program in 2011, gathers around 50 research teams working on plant sciences, as well as several teaching programs.

This meeting will aim at fostering interactions between those two communities and promoting common research projects. It will include discussions on potential collaboration topics, such as : photosynthesis and fluorescence ; N/P/K use efficiency ; water use efficiency ; development and growth ; multiscale modeling (transverse topic) on metabolism, growth, omic data...

Two keynotes lectures will be given by:

  • Jeremy Harbinson (Wageningen University & Research - The Netherlands)
  • Oskar Franklin (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis - IIASA, Austria)


Please not that a call for a PhD project cofunded by CLAND and SPS and involving teams from both netwoks will be presented during this meeting. The call will very soon be published.
