Chris Bisson  Policy Development Manager at the Eden Project.

Chris has spent his entire working life working with plant-based data of some sort. He worked in a team at RBG Kew creating species targeting guides for MSB collection trips for four years before becoming the Plant Records Manager at the Eden Project in Cornwall. An interesting move from the world of plant conservation to horticulture! At Eden Chris’ main roles are to manage the living collections data, name verification, to compile and record material transfer and licenses. In his time at Eden, Chris has been involved in a vast array of horticultural and educational projects, ranging from creating a GIS to working with A-level students on DNA extraction. In 2016 he took up the role of Policy Development Manager at the Eden Project.
