Jülich Plant Science Seminars (JPSS)
This series of seminars is hosted by the institute of Plant Sciences (IBG-2), Forschungszentrum Jülich, on a monthly base.
For this seminar series we are inviting internationally renowned experts from different fields within plant sciences and from other research areas relevant for out interdisciplinary work.Since, at the same time, we are aiming for strengthening the integration of regional plant sciences we invite all interested persons to participate in these seminars.
On this webpage you will find an overview of the last and planned seminar dates.
If you would like to receive updates in upcoming seminars via email you have here the opportunity to register yourself for the JPSS mailinglist.

All seminars will be held in the seminar room on the second floor of the IBG-2 institute building (Geb. 06.2) on the campus of the research center Jülich http://www.fz-juelich.de/ibg/ibg-2/EN/About_us/Travel_Information/travel_node.html unless otherwise announced.
Please be aware that for external visitors an advance announcement will speed up the security check at the entrance of the campus considerably.
To do this please contact at least 3 days before the seminar our institute secretary Mrs. Ulbrich (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the seminar coordinator (email@example.com), giving your name, nationality and address of your home institution.
In any case it is mandatory to present a valid ID-card or passport at the security check to enter the campus.
