Based on the platform of CRAES International Scientific Advisory Committee (CRAES-ISAC) and CRAES’ collaboration network, CRAES is proud to present the CRAES Master Lecture series, where world-renowned scientists and the brightest thinkers share the latest research findings on the academic frontier, and addressing topics on hot issues of ecology and environment with fresh, provocative perspectives. After the establishment of CRAES-ISAC in 2018, the establishment of CRAES Master Lecture is another important measure for CRAES to strengthen scientific cooperation while facing the international frontier.
