Exciting news! A new article from our team at AgroParisTech has been published in the journal Antioxidants. It describes new UV filters suitable for plants. Because your plants also need sun protection! Link: mdpi.com/2076-3921/9/4/
Our first all-member project meeting was held this week at the University of Warwick. We heard talks from all parts of our project, presented by our researchers (postgraduate researchers and principal investigators, alike). The resulting conversations have given us many new challenges and exciting research to conduct. Summaries of our initial findings will be posted soon!
BoostCrop consortium members hosted an outreach event at the University of Warwick today. Students were posed with the question: “If you had our tools, what problem would you solve? What thing would you invent? What would you like to understand more, to help make the world a better place? How do you propose you will achieve this? The event was attended by Christine Ennew, University of Warwick Provost, who was inspired: “If I had my lot again, I would have liked to become a scientist!”
The Lead Investigators meet at our kick-off meeting, held on Valentine’s Day at the WTC Schiphol Airport. We were all feeling the love for the BoostCrop concept and very keen to getting the science started. What better way to start that to meet up and share each other’s research interests and outlooks on the project.
