We are firm advocates for the phrase “learning by doing”. That is why we committed to bringing application-focused plant science into schools and universities. This way you can see all the potential of your selected field of study, broaden your skills and find a unique way that you can contribute to an ever changing world. We believe that with the right attitude, you can take your career to new heights by integrating other fields. But learning when to do this in your career can be difficult. We are working to expose university students, recent graduates and early career researchers to different scientific disciplines and together build on ways to broaden research proposals by forming interdisciplinary collaborations.
