 Plant adaptations to climate changes

The Blended Intensive Program on “Plant adaptations to climate changes” will be hosted by the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal, in April and May 2024.

Priorities addressed: Environment and fight against climate change

Objectives and methods: Agriculture faces significant challenges exacerbated by climate change and pollution. Our program addresses this need through a multifaceted approach. Theoretical sessions, conducted both online and in-person, in synchronous and asynchronous formats, explore the diverse facets such as plant physiology, development, and productivity in response to abiotic and biotic stresses induced by climate change and pollution. Hands-on experimental activities will enable participants to apply theoretical concepts. Furthermore, seminars by national and international specialists will enrich participants' understanding of cutting-edge research and emerging trends.
