We will discuss how biotechnology of plants and microbes can be used to meet several UN goals (screen for more productive and stress tolerant plants in tropical versus arctic regions, how plants and microbes can increase the fertility of soil and contribute to an enhanced forest and food production, clean up  polluted areas and produce sustainable energy). Includes health issues and bioeconomy and a broader approach to understand the evolution and survival of life on Earth and beyond Earth. Introduce Swedish space research.
