Hands-on plant breeding at NPZ

We are happy to announce the Summer School “Hands-on Plant Breeding”!

The Summer School will take place at the renowned breeding company NPZ (Norddeutsche Pflanzenzucht Hans-Georg Lembke) in Groß Lüsewitz and Poel Island.

Topics include testing resistance, marker lab, phytopathology, crossing, commercial breeding and assessment of plants. We will have a look on different crops ranging from rape seed and legumes to grasses. You will gain insights into the work routines of a breeding company and hands-on training.

The actual summer school takes place May 18-20. On the evening of May 17, we invite you for dinner and a peer-coaching barcamp as a warm-up in Rostock.  

The summer school is free of charge. Travel and accommodation costs may be reimbursed.

Young scientists not funded by the BMBF may also participate in the Summer School, but PLANT 2030 ACADEMY members will be preferred upon registration.

Save the date! Enrollment will start within the next weeks. PLANT 2030 ACADEMY members will receive the official invitation and instructions for registration.
