The Banana Scientific Symposium in Cairns 17th May 2023!
After the success of the 2021 event, the third Banana Scientific Symposium will be delivered in association with the 2023 Banana Congress. The Scientific Symposium is a great opportunity for the banana research community to share their latest research, exchange ideas, improve linkages and initiate new collaborations. The symposium will be a full day event comprising 10 minute scientific presentations with Q&A sessions.
The Scientific Symposium will afford RD&E providers attending the 2023 Banana Congress, an opportunity to present a more detailed account of their latest research in addition to an opportunity to present posters within the Congress Programme.
The Australian banana industry is well supported by banana researchers from various government agencies, universities, and other service providers across Australia. The Symposium provides a great opportunity to foster communication and collaboration between researchers so that we continue to deliver high quality scientific research that adds value and benefits Australian banana growers. Participants rated the previous Scientific symposia in very highly, indicating they gained new contacts, and improved their knowledge of banana R&D activities. Previous symposia were attended by over 60 researchers from a wide range RD&E service providers across Australia, and we hope to see the same attendance this year.
Growers keen to hear about the latest Scientific developments may also be interesting in attending and are welcome.
