Here are couple of pictures from two rather contrasting events. First of all, we had the public ceremony to celebrate the beginning of the new academic year, during which Hiie Ivanova received her PhD diploma and Josep Peñuelas received his honorary doctorate. (You can watch the ceremony in full here.)
Our lab also participated in the Researcher´s Night Festival, which is an Pan-European initiative to show non-scientists (especially young people) that science is fun and engaging thing to do. Which, of course, it is. Our lab´s topic this year was to present the fascinating evolutionary history of (mainly woody) plants, and show how plants communicate with each other.
