The Plant Environmental Physiology Group (PEPG)’s Field Techniques Workshop will take place from Sunday, 10th September to Friday, 15th September 2023, in Naturasolta - Quinta de São Pedro, Portugal, just 15 minutes from Lisbon.

Plant biologists will come together for a series of practical workshops, alongside presenting their work in the form of a poster (with selected abstracts being given the opportunity to present a flash talk alongside their poster).

The workshop includes hands-on practical sessions every morning, featuring both an academic researcher and a manufacturer representative. Each afternoon features lectures to offer a deep perspective on the theory underpinning the practical sessions that the participants are receiving.

The organisers would like to encourage students, early career researchers (PhD and Postdoctoral) and well-practiced biologists in the field of environmental physiology and experimental botany to attend. Attendees will also include 14 established scientists as well as representatives from 10 scientific manufacturers.
