First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research, ePS-1
A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium

ePS-Young meeting

Thanks to all participants in ePS-1-Young! 

The ePS-1-Young meeting took place during the weekend (24th - 25th of June, 2018) before the main ePS-1 meeting.

The aim of this meeting was to provide a forum for young scientists to present and discuss their research amongst each other in an informal atmosphere. We also wished to promote an environment for young researchers to build networks amongst each other.


The theme of the ePS-Young meeting broadly mirrors the main meeting:

Photosynthesis: physiology, structure and mechanisms.

Global photosynthesis: improving crops, forests and relationship between photosynthesis and climate

Solar fuels: Artificial photosynthesis, microbial photosynthetic products.

Two keynote lectures were given by Professor Ferdi Schüth, vice president of the Max-Planck-Society, and by Professor Michael R. Wasielewski, executive director of the Solar Fuels Institute at Northwestern University.

The meeting took place at the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala. Oral presentations were selected from submitted abstracts. In order to provide more opportunities for young researchers to highlight their own science, there were also flash poster presentations (3 min each), followed immediately by poster sessions to encourage active discussions. An overview of the program is found in the PDF-file on this page.


ePS-Young was organized by Rui Miao and Michael Cheah. Thanks for joining our meeting, we had a great time!
