DBG invites members to submit proposals for a "hot topic" conference in the plant sciences. If you have a concept for a smaller conference about a relevant and burning plant science issue, please send it to DBG's Executive Board. Within the scope of our Eduard Strasburger Workshop DBG offers financial support for its organisation of up to 10,000 Euros.

Important Criteria for a Successful Application are

  1. a topic with broad scientific or societal significance
  2. the topic that encompasses several plant science disciplines
  3. participation of early career scientists

If either (1) or (2) of the criteria on one hand and (3) on the other hand are met, please send your proposal to DBG's General Secretary. You are welcome to send a preliminary inquiry on your issue to our General Secretary.

Applications for our Eduard Strasburger Workshop on a Hot Topic may be submitted to DBG's General Secretary at any time.
