The PSC organizes annual symposia on topics at the forefront of the plant sciences. These events are open to everyone and provide an opportunity for young scientists to interact with experts in diverse research areas. In alternate years, the PhD students of PSC doctoral programmes take the lead to plan and implement the symposium (* marks all symposia organized by PSC PhD-students).
