The PSRN will be planning a Plant Summit to identify priority funding areas and a strategy to execute the scientific research areas outlined in the NPSI, with the ultimate goal of identifying a path forward. In early 2018 we will be in touch with information on how your organization can participate.
Looking forward, a third Plant Science Summit that will be organized by the PSRN in late 2018 or early 2019. During this summit, participants reflecting the breadth of the plant science community represented among PSRN member organizations will use the NPSI as a basis from which to develop the successor document to the 2013 report: Unleashing a Decade of Innovation in Plant Science – A Vision for 2015-2025 (http://bit.ly/DecadalVision). With the input and support of your organization, the successor document will significantly broaden and deepen the reach of the original Decadal Vision by detailing the steps we’ll need to take in order to achieve the plant science community’s vision for research priorities areas; identifying the ways in which we will need to reimagine and revamp postgraduate training to accomplish those goals; and describing the cyberinfrastructure that will be needed to underpin these efforts.
On behalf of the PSRN leadership David Stern (PI), Crispin Taylor (co-PI), Vanessa Greenlee (Broadening Participation Coordinator), Natalie Henkhaus (Executive Coordinator)
