Synopsis

This visit will provide an opportunity to see something of what is going on in the newly created 'Rothamsted Innovation Hub'.

The programme will be flexible in order to cater for the various interests of our group, but there will also be an opportunity to meet and discuss their work with other Rothamsted staff, and to tour the glasshouse facilities.

Members from Agrisciences, Horticulture, Food, Environment, Health and Safety and Cambridge and Great Eastern Groups are invited to join the visit.
