Previous news and events

The First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research was a success!

Over 400 delegates from Europe, and all over the world, discussed recent findings in natural and artificial photosynthesison June 25 - 28, 2018. To see what it was all about, go to the conference homepage: ePS1.org

One of our prominent invited speakers, Junko Yano from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was interviewed in Swedish national radio. You can listen to the program here (mostly in Swedish).

The CAP workshop 2018

Our annual workshop was held at Sigtunahöjden in Sigtuna, on April 26-27. Thanks for all the interesting presentations everyone, you made the workshop great!
