The Pears Foundation
Webinar in Plant Sciences
September 19-20, 2011
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is pleased to announce the first annual Pears Foundation Webinar. Each year, a two-day, interactive webinar will present alternating themes of current scientific topics and lectures, which we hope will be an enriching, professional experience both for students and alumni.
This September the focus is on Plant Sciences. Thirteen graduates will present the research exercises they have conducted over the year. The keynote speaker is Prof. Shahal Abbo of HUJI's Robert. H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment. The closing lecture will be given by the Pears Alumni Guest Lecturer, Tesfay Araya of Ethiopia.
We welcome all alumni of the various international programs of the Division for External Studies since 1988 to participate in this special event, particularly where their field of study touches on the topics presented in the webinar.
The staff and students of our faculty, as well as researchers from other institutions, are welcome to join in.
The webinar has been made possible through a donation from the Pears Foundation of the UK.
