SALON Global Agriculture invites to a discussion on plant based bio-economy at the Dutch embassy

06 February 2020 - On 5 March 2020, the event "Impulses for the plant-based bioeconomy - focus on photosynthesis" will take place at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Berlin with the participation of the ScienceCampus Halle (WCH).

The Science Year 2020 will focus on the bio-economy and therefore on a new and sustainable economy. In various lectures, a science slam and a panel discussion, experts from Germany and the Netherlands will address the question of the role of the plant-based bioeconomy in the process of a transition to a fossil-free economy. IAMO scientist Frans Hermanns, among others, will provide insights into current research.
