Ruth Bastow

Global Plant Council
Executive Director
Ruth Bastow is the Executive Director of the Global Plant Council (GPC). GPC is a coalition of national, regional and international societies and partner organisations representing ~55,000 plant, crop and agricultural experts across the globe. The GPC aims to provide an independent and inclusive forum to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training; facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges; foster international collaborations and enable the effective use of knowledge and resources. A key priority area for the GPC is the promotion of open data we believe that we can achieve more if we foster an environment where research across geographies, crops and agro-ecosystems is linked together, and sharing of knowledge, data and other resources is promoted and valued.
