SPS 2013 Meeting

April 8-9, 2013 - INRA - Versailles

The 2013 Meeting of the Saclay Plant Sciences Laboratory of Excellence took place on April 8-9, in front of all the members of its International Scientific Advisory Board.

To allow the SPS scientists to present their latest findings in front of the Scientific Advisory Board, the SPS Meeting was reserved for SPS members only and upon invitation for the representatives of our institutions and the ANR.
This meeting gathered 80 to 90 people among whom representatives of the FCS Campus Paris-Saclay, the CNRS et the ANR.

Monday afternoon was devoted to a general presentation of the Paris-Saclay IdEx and the LabEx SPS, as well as the presentation of the work and prospects of the SPS working groups.
On Tuesday, the coordinators of the flagship projects presented the progress of their work. Moreover, the coordinators of the projects selected through SPS open calls (Research and SPS'Innov) gave an overview of the scientific background of their projects and the strategy considered to complete them successfully. Finally, the leaders of the platforms of the four SPS laboratories presented the available tools and took examples to show what was possible to do with the equipment and skills present on those platforms.

The Scientific Advisory Board met on Wednesday April 10.
