We are pleased to announce a joint
HealGenCAR-MULTIFOREVER Workshop on Conifer Vegetative Propagation, Multiplied conifer seed – prospects of somatic embryogenesis
|When||May 26‒27, 2021|
The workshop aims to bring together researchers, authorities, representatives of industry and forest plant producers to discuss current state and prospects of conifer vegetative propagation. The topics included in the program cover not only research achievements, but also legislation and forest owner views on reforestation materials produced by somatic embryogenesis (SE) i.e. by tissue culture.
- The workshop will be arranged as a webinar including presentation of Luke SE technology platform and field trials by videos.
- There is no registration fee.
- The registration for the webinar is open till May 21. The registered participants will get a TEAMS-link to join the workshop.
All the speakers have been confirmed, with the following preliminary presentation titles. Small changes are possible.
|May 26, 14-17 hours (Finnish time)|
