KPC Summer School Advert

The KPC summer school is aimed at early career stage scientists (PhD and post docs) and will bring together plant, crop and soil scientists as well as scientists from related disciplines who focus on plant–soil–microbial interactions.

Over 4 days, 30 participants and speakers from the Kiel Plant Center and partners across the Baltic region will present and discuss fundamental concepts in the field, new findings, and recent methodological developments. Invited speakers will present their research and latest developments in the field in several keynote talks, and from submitted abstracts, several students will be selected to present their research in detail.

Alongside keynote talks, student talks, flash talks, and moderated group discussions, the summer school will also include a visual communication workshop and networking activities. We hope that the connections made during the course will continue far into the future!
