Virtual Launch Invitation

About this Event

Professor Giles Oldroyd FRS (Director, Crop Science Centre) and Dr Tina Barsby (CEO, NIAB) invite you to the launch of the Crop Science Centre.

The Crop Science Centre is a coalition of expertise between the University’s Department of Plant Sciences and NIAB, aligning their complementary strengths in a new, state-of-the-art facility.

The Centre’s founding ethos is to enhance the sustainability, equity and resilience of global food production systems through the application of fundamental plant science research. It will address the most urgent problems society faces – providing a secure global food supply in the face of a changing climate. A commitment to delivery and impact underpins the Centre’s strategic focus: to bring transformative technologies to farmers across the world, improve the environment and ensure food security for millions of people.

Join us online on Thursday 1st of October (16:00 BST) to find out more about this new initiative.
