7th EPSO Conference, 1-4 September 2013, Greece


Thank you! 

The EPSO Board and the local organising committee thanks all participants, speakers, organisers and helping students for helping to make the 7th EPSO Conference  in Porto Heli, Greece such a success.

The conference brought together a diverse group of researchers from across the world who presented, discussed, and exchanged a broad range of plant science topics: from pollen to politics, from bioeconomy to biodiversity, from epigeneitcs to the environment.  We hope new friendships were made, new collaborations forged, and we hope you will consider joining us again for our future joint conferences with FESPB in Dublin in 2014, and in Prague in 2016.
