Celebrating Biodiversity Day
To celebrate the Biodiversity Day on the 22nd June 2018, the TomGEM partner Biotecgen organised a visit to the Botanical Garden of the Department of Biological and Environmental Science and Technology of the University of Salento.
School children were invited for a tour in the botanical garden where some researchers from the University of Salento and the Italian Institute of Sciences of Food Production (ISPA-CNR) talked about the spontaneous species of agronomic interest. Maurizio Chiesi of Biotecgen and Angelo Santino of the CNR-ISPA presented the TomGEM project and launched a competition for the best drawing related to a biodiversity theme. Winners received a TomGEM cap!
