Planetary Biology 2024 Conference – Linking molecules to ecosystems

September 17, 2024 @ 08:00 September 18, 2024 @ 17:00 CEST

The Planetary Biology Capability at SciLifeLab is pleased to announce its first conference and all-hands meeting on the theme “Linking molecules to ecosystems”.

The main goal of this conference is to create future opportunities to integrate cross-scale methodological approaches to advance our understanding of ecosystem interactions and functions.
We want participants to get the most out of the conference, so the two-day program includes inspirational talks, poster presentations, and two interactive sessions to:

1) Foster opportunities to develop collaborations. We encourage you to present a short (2-minute max) project idea pitch explaining where you see opportunities for collaboration to bridge the molecular and ecosystem scales.

2) Overcome challenges in applying new technologies and cross-scale approaches to span from molecules to ecosystems. Are you intending to apply cutting-edge technologies to your research but find it challenging? Are there technical or methodological problems you need to solve? Let us know in the registration form so we can involve experts working on the 10 technology platforms at SciLifelab.

Join us in Gothenburg in September!
