Translational Photosynthesis Conference 2019

Innovations in Agriculture for Food Security

30 June – 3 July 2019, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

This conference brings together the key elements for a future food revolution.

It aims to connect to people whose common goal is to generate real-world solutions to global food production challenges, including scientists, business owners, agri-businesses, funding bodies, policy makers, and other future-focussed experts and leaders.

Our common focus: translating plant science innovations into better crops.
