The Marie Sklodowska Curie – Projekt BestPass (Boosting Plant-Endophyte Stability, Compatibility and Performance across scales) had its midterm evaluation in September. From IGZ Prof Philipp Franken, Dr Rita Grosch, Dr Silke Ruppel, Dr Marina Korn and of course the Phd-students  Shubhangi Sharma and Vincenzo DeRocchis are involved. BestPass is coordinated by Prof David Collinge from Copenhagen University.

In the framework of this year´s 2nd Annual Meetings at Humboldt University in Berlin fa halfday public Colloquium with 4 invited Speakers took place, followed by a (successful) midterm Evaluation by the EU Project officer and an independent evaluator.

On day 3-5, a workshop was organized only for the PhD-students involved in this Project. They are from Germany, Greece, Italy, India, Austria, Portugal and Spain.  

It was an exciting and interesting Meeting. The next one will take place in Poland, in June 2018.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 676480

LEADS2018 – Berlin, Germany, 29-30 January 2018

Global societal challenges like achieving food security for all, decreasing social inequalities, preventing and overcoming violent conflict and maintaining biodiversity necessarily require strong inter-disciplinary and international research collaboration. Research at the interface of the environment and development is often hampered by traditional academic boundaries. New ideas and fresh approaches are required to understand such challenges and for research to help overcome them. Young researchers in particular can play a key role in doing so.

To address these exciting research challenges and to help overcome these structural barriers within academia, the five German research institutes ATB, GIGA, IGZ, ZALF and ZMT have established the Leibniz Environment and Development Symposium (LEADS). The aim of LEADS is to foster interdisciplinary and international research collaboration dealing with global societal challenges among early career researchers and senior scholars. As such LEADS also understands itself as a contribution by the German research community to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations.

The conference language will be English.

For further information, please visit http://www.igzev.de/leads2018 or send an email to leads2018@igzev.de.

 

The Symposium will start Monday, 29 January @ 12a.m.  and will be finished @ 5p.m. on Tuesday, January, 30th.

The 4th International Glucosinolate Conference will cover a range of topics of glucosinolate research from ‘omics to food Systems.

Topics

  • Molecular and Genetic Aspects of Glucosinolates
  • Glucosinolates in Agro- and Food Systems
  • Glucosinolates and Human Health
  • Glucosinolates and Ecology

Each theme will be introduced by invited keynote speakers and followed by presentations selected from the participants. We explicitly aim to foster integration between the themes by having thematically mixed poster sessions. Each poster presenter will have the opportunity to highlight his or her poster in an oral ‘flash’ presentation.  Integration between the participants is further stimulated during the excursion and conference dinner on Tuesday.

We warmly invite you to join us for this conference, organized by scientists of the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ).

Please sign up for the mailing list for receiving more detailed information on this conference via e-mail: info@glucosinolates2017.org
