The Society for Free Radical Research - Europe (SFRR-E) was founded in 1988, and is a member of the International Society for Free Radical Research. SFRR-E is a charitable voluntary, non-profit making institution, which has the objective of advancing education in free radical and redox processes, particularly those with industrial and medical importance. SFRR-E strives to provide continuing education and training to scientists who share an active interest in free radical and redox-related research. This is achieved by way of the SFRR-E website, newsletters, annual meetings and outreach activities, such as summer schools and webinars, which also provides a forum for discussions. SFRR-E also seeks to promote research and publication of its beneficial findings.


Members of SFRR-E receive publication discounts in the journals “Free Radical Biology and Medicine” and “Redox Biology”, which are leading journals in the field.

The Plant Oxygen Group (POG) was established in 1993 in the Society for Free Radical Research (SFRR- Europe) and now gathers laboratoriesresearching reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in all their aspects in plants. The main goal of POG is to provide a major interdisciplinary platform for cutting edge research in all aspects of free radical research in plants by organising every two years the POG conferences to provide a forum for discussion and for the effective exchange of information and new ideas on every aspect of oxygen metabolism, free radical action and oxidative signalling. The conferences also provide a dynamic interface between innovative academic research and practical applications in areas such as agriculture, forestry, plant pathology, food technology, medicine and human nutrition.
