MiCRop seminar series

Since May 2021, MiCRop organises a series of bimonthly MiCRop seminars (online) to train our PhD-students, postdocs and Tenure Trackers. Experts in the field are invited to present their pioneering work in the plant-microbiome interaction. This is an excellent opportunity to provide the team with interactions with experts from outside the consortium.

Upcoming seminar

Speaker: Prof. Lars Hestbjerg Hansen, Microbial Ecology and Biotechnology, Copenhagen University, Denmark

Title: to be announced
