GARNet-Presents Webinars

The GARNet-Presents series owes a huge debt of thanks to the widely popular Plantae Presents series that has demonstrated that there is a community-need for events of this type.

We will run this series through the GoToWebinar software, which allows simple presentation with the facility for meeting attendees to ask questions in a chat box. A selection of these questions will be moderated by the webinar chairperson. Each week two speakers will present their research over 30minute sessions.


We are looking for Webinar speakers later in the #GARNet-Presents series. We will be starting up after the summer break on September 14th 2020.

These are 20minute talks with 5-10 minutes for questions. We run GARNet-Presents through GoToWebinar and will require a decent Wifi connection and a webcam. You’d share your screen for everyone to view as you talk.

If you are interested in presented then please email Geraint Parry with a statement of interest and a talk title. We are hoping to recruit plant scientists of any career stage or research interest.

Webinars will be made freely available on this page soon after the events. Although closed captioning/subtitles are not available for live webinars after the event a transcription will be available with the recording.
