Last changed: 15 April 2019

The SLU Platform Plant Protection is arranging an internal workshop on 9-10 September 2019 with the title "Plant protection at SLU - ideas for the future". All researchers, Postdocs and PhD-students at SLU are welcome to participate.

Which are the key challenges for future plant protection? How should we at SLU best continue working together and with society to solve these?

At this SLU-internal workshop, we will discuss, exchange ideas and get inspired. We will combine our strengths for future coordination and strategic funding of plant protection activities at SLU. The SLU Platform Plant Protection initiative (www.slu.se/platformplantprotection) is planned to end in mid-2020 and we will summarize our experiences and look forward. The work of the focus groups from SLU Platform Plant Protection as well as ideas from the participants will form the starting point for these discussions.

Aims of the meeting are to identify challenges and possible solutions for plant protection at SLU, and to plan how we should organize and attract funding for plant protection research, outreach and teaching at SLU in the future.

All researchers, postdocs and PhD-students with an interest in protecting our forests and horticultural and agricultural crops against weeds, insects, viruses, mammals, nematodes, fungi etc etc at SLU are welcome to participate in this SLU-internal workshop – first come first served. The workshop is free of charge and SLU Platform Plant Protection will cover travel costs, food and accommodation of the participants.
