CYBO (Conference of Young Botanists) is a conference from young researchers, for young researchers. We want to bring together PhD students and post-docs, creating an opportunity for dialogue and networking tailored for early career scientists in a multidisciplinary environment.

The conference will kick off with a series of satellite webinars starting from January 2022, and will culminate with the in-person meeting on 9-10 February 2023 in Bozen (Italy).

Registration is necessary. Please register for the webinar by clicking on the title.
