About ISPR …

The International Society of Photosynthesis Research (ISPR) celebrates its 25th Anniversary in summer of 2020. The Society was founded August 22, 1995 by ratification of its Constitution at the Xth International Photosynthesis Congress in Montpellier, France. The purposes of ISPR are to:

  • encourage the growth and to promote the development of photosynthesis as a pure and applied science
  • to facilitate publication of research in photosynthesis
  • to sponsor the organization of a triennial International Congress on Photosynthesis
  • to promote international cooperation in photosynthesis research and education

ISPR membership spans six continents and our members work across academia, education and training, as well as in government, industrial and commercial research environments. The Society plays a key role in uniting the photosynthesis research community internationally. Membership of ISPR is open to those concerned with all aspects (molecular, genetic, cellular and organismal) of the biochemistry, biophysics and physiology of photosynthesis in plants in agriculture and forestry, natural ecosystems and the marine and global environment.
