New Voices Symposium 2019Laura du Plessis
With this event, the Cereal Science and Technology of South Africa is striving to unite students in cereal science from a national platform, and to provide them with the opportunity to report on their research on wheat, maize, barley and sorghum. Specific objectives were to:
- provide postgraduate students and young career scientists with the opportunity to present an oral presentation at a national event;
- offer participants the opportunity to share their research findings, exchange knowledge and experiences;
- create a critical mass of young, enthusiastic cereal scientists; and
- showcase potential new employees to representatives of the grain industry value chain.
