The symposium will be an opportunity for scientists at all career stages to exchange ideas and establish new connections beyond borders. We invite PhD students, Early Career Researchers, Post-Docs and Principal investigators to join us. Especially dedicated to younger researchers, the programme will include pitch talks where PhD students will have the opportunity to present a key result regarding their research project. Additionally we are putting together special networking opportunities aimed at breaking the ice between researchers and industry!

Held at the Waite Campus precinct, we are in the perfect environment to transfer fundamental research to agriculture and industry. In the Waite Campus 15 organisations associated with plant development, agriculture, food industry, wine and natural resources science compose a hub for the improvement of food security in a world where fighting climate change effects is more imperative than ever.

The organisers of this event are members of the European project SexSeed. A/Prof Matthew Tucker and PhD student Dayton Bird from the University of Adelaide, Dr Sílvia Coimbra and PhD student Sara Pinto from the University of Porto, Dr Lucia Colombo and PhD Rosanna Petrella from the University of Milan.
