Two innovative research projects within the EPS community were approved for the Open Competition Domain Science-M programme

2021-11-18T16:28:53+01:00

Dr. Charlotte Gommers (WUR) "A cry for green light sensing in plants"  Plants use photoreceptors to see the spectral distribution of their light surroundings. This information is essential to optimize light capture and fuel photosynthesis. Although we are well familiar with the photoreceptors for red and blue light, it remains unknown how plants detect green light. In this project, we aim to discover the photoreceptor for green light, and investigate how green light sensing helps plants to optimize their growth.

EPS members Marc Galland and Like Fokkens awarded with Open Science Fund 2021 from NWO

2021-11-18T13:40:00+01:00

The Amsterdam Science Park Study Group is a local community of life scientists that share their expertise, organize training and promote good practices in data-related topics such as data analysis, programming and data management. Engaging early-career researchers through peer-to-peer mentoring and training is a valuable approach to foster a cultural change toward a more Open Science. The proposal of  J. Goedhardt and his team members Marc Galland, Like Fokkens and Stacy Shinneman aims to expand our current activities and to upscale our community to increase the impact of the Amsterdam Science Park Study Group on Open Science practices in the [...]
