Belcher joins Advisory Group for the Bridging Plant Science and Society research program
ZURICH, CH Brian Belcher has been appointed to the Advisory Group for “PSC-Mercator Fellowship Program – Bridging Plant Science and Society” at ETH Zurich. This transdisciplinary PhD fellowship program supports research projects that deal with socially-relevant issues from the perspective more than one academic discipline and in collaboration with at least one relevant non-academic stakeholder. The program provides a high level of mentoring and support for students, with the aim of developing a new, more inclusive approach to research, bridging plant science and society. As part of this, Belcher co-led a workshop at ETH over March 5-6, 2018, and took the opportunity to network with other scholars and potential collaborators.
