BSPP Plant Pathology Outreach Workshop 2020-2021

17th September 2020 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST

During the lead up to UK Plant Health Week (21st– 27th September) please join us for an online workshop to share best practice on outreach activities to promote plant pathology. Early career researchers are particularly encouraged to attend and present their ideas.

The event will take place between 2-5 pm (British Summer Time) 2-5 pm on Thursday 17th  September.

Running order:

  • An introductory talk by one of the BSPP’s presidents.
  • Talks (10 min) by researchers sharing their experiences on designing, delivering and evaluating plant pathology outreach activities.
  • A discussion on best practice in plant pathology outreach, including how to adapt outreach activities during social distancing restrictions and how to interact with audiences remotely using a range of media.

We hope that the workshop will inspire researchers to promote their passion for plant pathology throughout the coming months, which in the UK include not only UK Plant Health Week, but also Biology Week (3rd – 11th October) and National Tree Week (30th November – 6th December).

Please use the on-line form below to register your interest in attending this event. If you wish to offer a 10-minute presentation, please submit a short abstract (c. 200 words). Alternatively, you are welcome to present your ideas or experience through an e-poster, in which case please submit your poster title and a short summary of planned content (c. 100 words).

Please register your interest by the 28th August.
