Dear Colleagues,

As in 2013, venue is “Kongresshotel Potsdam” on the shore of Lake Templin. Special room rates will be negotiated with the hotel and are available via the conferences website later. There will also be some rooms available for project meetings.  They have to be booked in advance (details will follow soon).

The agenda will include presentations on the progress made in running Plant Biotechnology, PLANT KBBE, DPPN and related projects. Poster session will be held for all sub projects. There will be a conference dinner, a dedicated poster session as well as some keynote lectures by outstanding international plant scientists.


The Status Seminar is an internal conference and is not open to the public. Therefore please check if you are eligible for attending the conference.
