4th ESP Photobiology School

ESP logo

We have received from ESP the following announcement of interest to UV4Plants members.

Dear Colleague,

Registration is open for the 4th ESP Photobiology School, taking place in the beautiful Brixen/Bressanone in South Tyrol, Italy, from 20 to 25 June 2016.

The updated programme and registration and logistic information are available at the page www.photobiology.eu/photobiology_school.

The purpose of the school is to provide an introductory overview of all main aspects of photobiology, presented by experts in each area. The course is designed for PhD and Master students, as well as for scientists interested in an overview of the photobiological sciences.

The School is strongly supported by ESP and this is reflected in the low registration fee. In addition, low cost accommodation will be provided.

After completion of the course an attendance certificate will be provided to all the students. An optional short final test will be offered at the end of the course and an exam certificate will be provided after evaluation of the exam results. Passing the exam will entitle students to apply for the ESP supplement to the PhD degree.

Please circulate this information to your colleagues and students.

Best regards
Francesco Ghetti
ESP Treasurer
