UV4Plants 3rd Network / 1st virtual Meeting, October 13th ─ 16th 2020

A great and unforgettable meeting is over! The conference was perfectly organized by Wolfgang Bilger and Frauke Pescheck with the technical support of Carina Lietz and Christiana Anagnostou from the University of Kiel, Germany. There were 125 participants from 30 countries. It was conducted using Zoom and the Mattermost platform, which provided space for formal and informal chats. The meeting consisted of 6 sessions and two discussion panels. The organizes have even provided a Musical Dinner, which served great music from Germany, Poland, and Ireland, instead of meals. It was a formidable get-together party. Out of posters and presentations prepared by ESR researchers, four of them: Zheng Zhou, Aneta Bazant, Laura Díaz-Guerra, and Alicia Perera-Castro were awarded 100 Euro bursary (to be used for a future UV4Plant event). The meeting was preceded by a successful Virtual Training School, with 25 participants.
