CliMetabolomicsis a Franco-german Research Workshop that aims to better understand the plasticity of plants and to develop sustainable plants adapted to climate change.

CliMetabolomics offers training in analytical tools and an innovation management method to early career scientists.

The workshop lasts two weeks and consists of seminars, discussions and many practical courses.



It will take place from 20 to 24 June 2022 in France and from 20 to 23 September in Germany.

Registration is open.
