The Graduate School Experimental Plant Sciences (EPS)

Special Announcements


From 16 March until April 6, the EPS office will be working from home because of the Covid-19 measures. You can contact us by e-mail at our normal working hours. We’ll try to answer your e-mails as soon as possible but there may be some delay. We will try to keep the website updated with events that are being cancelled, but since not all information reaches us, it is best to always check with the organizer when in doubt.


EPS has decided to cancel this year’s Annual Meeting Experimental Plant Sciences planned for April 6 & 7. We considered that it would not be responsible to let the meeting continue with the present situation with the Covid-19 virus in the Netherlands. If you have any questions about the cancellation, please contact Ingrid Vleghels.
