Nitrogen-Plant Nutrition Unleashed: Experience Nitrogen 2023, a Global Symposium by the University of Sydney

Our member Blanca Bardaji (Research Manager, Centre for Carbon, Water and Food, Sydney Institute of Agriculture, The University of Sydney) invites SRAP members to attend the  “Nitrogen-Plant Nutrition Unleashed: Experience Nitrogen 2023“, a Global Symposium by the University of Sydney (November 6th to 9th, 2023).

Welcome to Nitrogen 2023!

Set against the vibrant backdrop of Sydney, Australia, from November 6-9, 2023, our symposium “Nitrogen-Plant Nutrition Unleashed: Experience Nitrogen 2023” is your gateway to exploring the intricate world of plant nitrogen. Hosted at the esteemed University of Sydney’s ‘The Refectory‘, this gathering unites brilliant minds deeply committed to fostering sustainable growth, especially in the face of impending global protein shortages.
Our comprehensive agenda features a lineup of exceptional plenary speakers, each an authority in their field:
  • Professor Giles Oldroyd, University of Cambridge, UK
  • Professor Chengcai Chu, South China Agricultural University, China
  • Professor Yoshikatsu Matsubayashi, Nagoya University, Japan
  • Professor Susanne Schmidt, University of Queensland, Australia
  • Professor Nicolaus von Wiren, Gatersleben, Germany
  • Professor Jeremy Murray, John Innes Centre, UK
  • Professor Guohua Xu, Nanjing Agricultural University, China
  • Professor Michael Udvardi, University of Queensland, Australia
  • Professor Yi-fang Tsay, Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica, Taiwan
  • Professor Eva Benková, Institute of Science and Technology Austria, Austria
As we convene, our shared mission is to address the pressing challenges tied to nitrogen accessibility, metabolism, and the efficient delivery of essential amino acids and proteins to nourish an ever-growing global population. Our symposium’s significance is underscored by its pivotal role in meeting UN Sustainable Development Goals. The correlation between enhanced N fertilizer application and the availability of protein-enriched foods from plant sources cannot be overstated.  Be a part of the solution. Mark your calendar, spread the word, and seize this unique opportunity to network, learn, and collaborate. Registration is now open, so secure your spot today. Let’s collectively drive change and contribute to a more sustainable world. We look forward to seeing you at Nitrogen 2023!
