Agrisera X-mas gift to We Agroforestry

2020 X-mas gift from Agrisera

This year our Christmas gift goes to Vi Agroforestry and the campaign All of Sweden against the Hunger Pandemic. As a result of the ongoing corona pandemic, there is a risk that 130 million people will suffer from acute famine. Vi Agroforestry works with tree planting in eastern Africa, where they train local farmers' organizations in sustainable agriculture and agroforestry, gender equality and business management. The effect is greater harvests and more food on the tables, more money to invest in the farm and in the children's schooling, and in the end reducing poverty and improved the climate.

We are proud to contribute!

We wish you all happy and merry holiday time and lots of success in 2021!

The UPSC Agrisera Prize 2020

Warmest congratulations to Ioanna Antoniadi who has received The Umeå Plant Science Centre Agrisera Prize 2020 to acknowledge her scientific achievements and her engagement to improve the work environment at UPSC. The UPSC Agrisera Prize is awarded every year to a person working at UPSC and was announced today during the virtual UPSC Christmas Celebration.

Ioanna Antoniadi works as a postdoc in Karin Ljung’s group at the Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology at SLU and is the expert for fluorescent-activated cell sorting (FACS) an advanced technique that allows to separate cells according to certain physical characteristics like for example different cell size.

The UPSC Agrisera Prize is awarded every year to a PhD student, a postdoc or a technician for excellent scientific achievement and great commitment to improve the UPSC work environment. It is sponsored by Agrisera but the members of the UPSC board select the winner of the prize. Everyone working at UPSC can nominate a colleague for the UPSC Agrisera Prize. This year, the UPSC Board received nine nominations, the highest number of nominations since 2014.

“The prize gives us the possibility to acknowledge great achievements and commitments and it is every year very difficult to choose one candidate out of many good suggestions”, says Catherine Bellini, chairmen of the UPSC Board who announced the winner of the prize today together with Joanna Porankiewicz-Asplund from Agrisera. “We were delight that we received this high number of nominations this year. It shows that people care about their workplace.”
