The CambPlants Hub is coordinating the University's participation at REAP Conference 2021 on 10 November, and there are opportunities for you to contribute your research for promotion on the University's stand. We are promoting relevant research and practice from any department/institute/faculty on the University's stand. Research covering food security, agriculture, crop science or agri-tech are welcome. I am happy to receive any relevant pre-prints, journal articles, posters, or videos to exhibit on the University's online stand. 

We are supporting a limited number of staff and students to attend for free, and interested parties can send Karen Hlaba (CambPlants Administrator) a short email, with a deadline of 15 September, answering these two questions: ‘Why is attending REAP important for your research? How do you envision using the knowledge/contacts gained in your research?’ Please also note the ticket bursary scheme advertised on the Conference website, with a closing date of 1 October. 

Caroline Reynolds from the BioScience Impact Team is happy to look into BBSRC FTMA funding for early career researchers working in the BBSRC remit to attend the Conference. Specifically, those who have not yet held their own research funding and who would like to attend this meeting to engage with industry. Students are not eligible unless they have submitted their PhD thesis. Anyone falling into these criteria is welcome to email me and I will forward their details to Caroline.    

University staff and students who would like to attend the Conference, and who are not able to access tickets through the aforementioned routes, are advised to contact me first as they will be eligible for additional ticket discounts as part of the University's membership. 

For attendees, the Conference offers the opportunity to present their work and network with other delegates (the attendee profile includes stakeholders from other universities, research institutions, industry, start-up companies, students, and farmers).
