An exciting opportunity for Maters students, PhD students, and post-doc working in plant biology.

The SPS Summer School 2021 is a one-week program providing an introduction on several aspects plant sugar metabolism, transport and signalling in relation to a challenging environment of global climate change. This course will include a mix of theoretical lectures delivered by world-class experts, and specific workshops allowing active exchanges between participants and experts. In an international and rather informal atmosphere, 20 participants from across the world will be offered a chance to receive this scientific training and the chance to exchange of ideas and questions. During the Summer School, participants also have the chance to present their research in a 5 minute flash-talk and poster.
