Chris Bisson, Policy Development Manager The Eden Project
Chris develops and manages projects focussed on horticulture and other biosciences. Having worked in areas of plant conservation, botany and most aspects of horticulture Chris has a broad knowledge of UK and global plant science. Recently Chris has worked on Eden’s scientific engagement programme and collaborative projects with Cornwall College whilst trying to promote science as accessible for all and fun and engaging. After spending nine years working in plant records and horticulture-based conservation programmes like the Lizard Juniper Conservation project Chris took up the position of Policy Development manager in 2016 where he now is responsible for much of the scientific programme on the Wellcome Trust funded Invisible Worlds project as well as several other plant science collaborations.
