Sharing Knowledge in Photosynthesis Research (SKiPR)

You are here

Together with colleagues of chair groups from PSG, AFSG and ESG we have set up a new seminar and discussion group on photosynthesis: Sharing Knowledge in Photosynthesis Research (SKiPR). In this group we hope to share knowledge on all things photosynthesis and hopefully stimulate collaborations and expand our networks (and have some mild fun if possible too). The group is aimed at researchers working on all forms of - or related to - photosynthesis research, from MSc student to professor, as well as those working in the applied research part of WUR.

What? The “Sharing Knowledge in Photosynthesis Research (SKiPR)” meetings are back! SKiPR sessions combine interesting talks with the possibility to socialize with fellow photosynthesis-minded people.
For who? Anyone at WUR (and beyond) who is interested in photosynthesis research.

When? We are planning to meet roughly once per month. The scientific talks will be between 16:00 and 17:00, with drinks afterwards.

Dates (and speakers) for the first three instances are:
- November 2, 2022 – Peter Jahns (UDuesseldorf) and Tom van den Berg (UTwente)
- December 7, 2022 – Wojcech Wietrzynski (UBasel) and Wojcech Nawrocki (UVA, Amsterdam)
- January 17, 2023 – Hugo de Boer (UUtrecht) and Ingrid Luijkx (WUR-MAQ)

Where? Talks will take place in the meeting room of the newly finished NPEC climate chamber building (see white arrow in the picture below).


It is located between Radix West and Nova, and adjacent to the insect greenhouse.

If you are interested, please join our open MS Teams group here, so that we can include you on our mailing list. We will contact you to remind you of upcoming SKiPR meetings. If you know someone who might be interested, please let them know.

We hope to see you all there!
