From September 18th to 20th, 2024 the third „Early Career Researchers’ Conference“ will be held in Germany, at Kloster Steinfeld and at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Cologne.

This biannual conference provides a platform for early career researchers in the field of plant science from three of the leading European plant science institutes, the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG), the John Innes Centre (JIC) and the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ), to exchange their research findings, network and establish connections with their peers in a collaborative and friendly environment.

Over the course of the three-day conference we want to bring together late-stage PhD students, junior postdocs and junior group leaders to participate in discussions about their latest discoveries in various domains of plant science and related fields. Additionally, attendees will have the valuable opportunity to engage in networking, fostering connections and expanding professional relationships within the scientific community.

Talks and posters for the different sessions of the conference will be selected from the submitted abstracts by May/June 2024.
