Breeding at SLU - internal workshop

interna händelser | seminarier, workshops |

A workshop to enhance collaboration of breeding researchers at SLU. There will be research presentations, an excursion, and discussion groups, and we will listen, interact and discuss ideas on how we can improve collaboration in breeding research, teaching and the usage of our infrastructure at SLU. Last but not least, we will socialize and have some fun!


Registration is now open, register here latest 15 July 2022 or until places are filled.

Abstract submission

In order to get to know each other’s research and to enhance collaboration, we would like that many participants, especially young researchers, postdocs and PhD students, present their research during this workshop. We will have space for 15 speed talk presentations and 35 poster presentations. Your abstract should not exceed half A4-page, and you should include your name and department.

You can still submit an abstract for a poster presentation, but not any more for a speed talk. Submissions are made via the registration page: https://www.slu.se/august22

For whom is this workshop?

The workshop is for people working within plant or animal breeding at SLU, who are employed, on a scholarship or admitted at SLU during the time of the workshop. The SLU Breeding Network will pay travel costs and accommodation at the Comfort Hotel Winn in Umeå for registered attendees. Maximum number of participants: 80.
