Summer Webinars on the Plant Science Decadal Vision

With society summer conferences going online, the Plant Science Research Network has hosted a series of virtual discussions on the new Plant Science Decadal Vision 2020 – 2030.

On August 26, BTI President Dr. David Stern presented on the Plant Science Decadal Vision 2020–2030, a holistic vision for the next decade of plant science that blends recommendations for research, people, and technology. Going beyond discoveries and applications, the plant science community must implement bold, innovative changes to research cultures and training paradigms in this era of automation, virtualization, and the looming shadow of climate change.

The Plant Science Decadal Vision 2020–2030 was written by representatives from the Plant Science Research Network (PSRN) scientific and professional organizations to develop an inclusive, common vision across the plant science research community to promote interdisciplinary integration of ideas and approaches.
