The previous six very successful events in this annual series have included a wide range of disciplines such as agronomy, crop and plant physiology, environmental sciences, molecular biology, plant nutrition, soil science, crop protection, analytical chemistry, biofuels and biomaterials.
This event is for early career scientists researching in biological, chemical, environmental and other relevant sciences who would like to present their work, and all those interested in learning about progress and meeting new talent in agrisciences.
- Experience presenting to a multidisciplinary audience
- Raise your profile, build networks, find ideas and inspiration
