Global Plant Council

The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of organizations representing the plant, crop, agricultural, and environmental sciences across the globe, representing thousands of experts.


Global Plant Council

Aims to promote plant science across borders & disciplines, supporting those involved in research, education and training, to increase awareness of plant research in science and society.



ECRi is a collection of activities addressed to help the Early Career Researchers with 4 essential pillars: job hunting, grant funding, dissemination of research results and networking.


The GPC’s blog serves to provide to the plant science community a platform for raising awareness about current issues, highlighting new research, reviewing recent events and promoting Member Organizations and their work.


We publish relevant news articles on plant science from across the globe to keep the community up to date with recent progress.

Guest posts wanted!
We want to help researchers to gain some well-deserved visibility.
