Symposium - Heineken Award winner Carl Folke
Tuesday 27 September 2022 (16:00 - 17:00h)
Carl Folke, director of the Beijer Institute for Ecological Economics and founder and chair of the board of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, is receiving the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Environmental Sciences 2022. The award honours his pioneering role in the integrated approach to sustainability issues. The environmental scientist was one of the first to argue that society and nature must be examined as a whole in order to maintain the resilience of Earth's social and ecological systems.
PhD’s and Postdoc Masterclass with Heineken Award winner Carl Folke
Tuesday 27 September 2022 (13:30 – 15:30h)
This masterclass is intended for PhD’s and postdocs who want to find solutions for ecological problems given that man and nature form an intertwined complex systems. The masterclass will be convened by Carl Folke, Marten Scheffer and Wim van der Putten. 
European Research and Innovation Days
28 - 29 September 2022
European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship Research and Innovation event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
Rewilding symposium: “Ecosystem restoration through rewilding: people, policies and practice”
29 September 2022
How does rewilding contribute to ecosystem restoration, how does it match European and national laws and policies, how to include people and how to communicate rewilding science? During this event, rewilding scientists and experts will address these questions by taking a multi-disciplinary perspective. With a mix of presentations, imagery, an on-site exhibition and the formal inauguration of Europe’s first chair in Rewilding Ecology at Wageningen University & Research’s Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Group, the event will be packed with inspiration for scientists, policy-makers, practitioners and people interested in the field of rewilding.
Environmental and Resource Economics – Module: Climate Economics
3 - 7 October 2022
What are the economic consequences of climate change? By how much should these consequences be reduced by climate change adaptation and mitigation policies? Which economic instruments are effective and efficient in stimulating a low-carbon economy and how do these instruments function? The module “Climate Economics” picks up these questions. Knowledge of “intermediate” microeconomics is beneficial, but selected readings will be provided, so PhD-candidates without this pre-knowledge can follow the course
Careers after PhD (CAP) - Seminar 'Being your own boss'
Thursday 6 October 2022 (14:00 - 17:00h)
This year's CAP seminar will be all about start-ups and spin offs after PhD and how to realize your own business. Feel welcome to join us for the seminar and drinks afterwards!
Symposium - Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR)
Tuesday 11 October 2022 (14:00 - 17:00h)
On a positive note, on-the-ground collective action is causing regional regreening in African drylands where farmers promote natural regeneration on their farmlands. This practice is called Farmer-Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR). In this symposium we will bridge local practice, global governance and different science perspectives to draw lessons from these developments for bringing restoration to scale.
Joint Symposium - Wildlife Diseases Going Viral
Thursday 13 October 2022
After the success of the first, we are happy to invite you to the second joint symposium organised by The Dutch Society for Wildlife Health (DSWH) and the Belgian Wildlife Disease Society (BWDS). This second joint symposium aims to illustrate the different interpretations of the subject “Wildlife diseases going viral" within a wildlife diseases context and using different approaches: actual viral pathogens, new wildlife species encounters and opportunistic wildlife species in the cities.
Genomic prediction in animal and plant breeding
17, 18, 20 & 21 October 2022
In the last decade, genomic prediction has been a game changer in animal breeding and has been more and more adopted in plant breeding. This course will review state-of-the-art theory and application of genomic prediction in animal and plant breeding with a focus on what the two fields can learn from each other for future research and application, understand each other’s language, and start developing a common language in terms of methodologies used and applications.
WUR Career Day
Wednesday 19 October 2022
This October 19, the WUR Career Day will be hosted. The aim of WUR Career Day is to provide a platform for students, PhD candidates, recent graduates and employers to meet each other. With almost 100 employers, this event is an ideal opportunity for them to network and find internship/job opportunities.
13th International Congress on Plant Molecular Biology
Sunday 23 - Thursday 27 October 2022
In the next few decades the world expects 2 billion more mouths to feed while our climate changes, so understanding how plant growth, development and crop yield respond to the environment has never been more important. This Congress will bring together over a thousand plant biologists from around the world who are making the latest discoveries on how genes, proteins, metabolism and physiology influence plant growth. Join the world’s best scientsts who will discuss the cutting-edge research being done to understand plant growth and development.
1st International Conference on FAIR Digital Objects
26 - 28 October 2022
The 1st International Conference of FAIR Digital Objects will bring together for the first time at this scale key technical, scientific, industry, and science-policy stakeholders with the aim to boost the development and implementation of FDOs worldwide and transform the Internet into more than just a data space: into a meaningful data space.
PE&RC Day 2022 - Artificial Intelligence and Sustainability
Thursday 27 October 2022
In this year’s edition of the PE&RC day, we will talk about what Artificial Intelligence (AI)means in terms of sustainability, how it can be implemented in natural sciences and how we can reach sustainable development goals by using artificial intelligence.
Python course 2022
3, 10 and 17 November 2022
This course is organized over three days. With the help of plenty hands-on exercises, you will get introduced into the different types of variables in Python, the peculiarities of Python and good programming habits. This course will provide you an ideal stepping stone for further developing programming skills in Python. Throughout the course we’ll stress the importance of ‘good programming practice’, such as clear variable names and adding comments to your code.
TedX Wageningen University
5 November 2022
The next TedX Wageningen University is coming up on November 5th 2022. This year’s theme is United for Change. The Event Experience team is looking for WUR PhD candidates or members of Wageningen-based start-ups to collaborate for the stage design of this year’s event. The idea is to come up with a physical representation of your project, which we can use to decorate the stage (and perhaps the event venue too). Think: a real-life Tree of Life, a carbon-capture prototype, an insect hotel, real-time poacher detection technology, a hydroponic farm… the options are endless!
