Agroecology and ecological intensification: perspectives from Europe and Latin America
8 November 2023
This mini-symposium will feature presentations highlighting four perspectives on agroecology and ecological intensification: agroecology and its relation to alternative future concepts from a Latin American perspective; agroecology and its role for Europe; ‘doing’ agroecology as a researcher; and capacity building for ecological intensification. The mini-symposium is organized on the occasion of Mariana Scarlato’s PhD thesis defence on 7 November 2023.
SAVE THE DATE Kick-off symposium National Center for Soil Ecology
14 November 2023
The Centre for Soil Ecology (CSE) was established in 2010 by the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) and Wageningen University and Research (WUR) to bring together soil ecologists in Wageningen. However, as soil ecology is happening all across the Netherlands, there is need to transform the CSE into the National Centre for Soil Ecology (NCSE) to connect soil ecologists across the Netherlands.
Science and Impact
15 November 2023
Given, among others, the many climate-change related extreme weather events of this summer, the pressing PFAS issue, and many other urgent matters. The responsibility of science to contribute to the analyses of and solutions for these issues, is felt by many within academia. But how to be societally involved and at the same time keep to scientific standards and values? These and other issues can be discussed during the SENSE symposium.

Microbial Theory Workshop
February 26 - March 15 2024
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce young theoretical investigators to biological issues pertaining to microbial symbiosis, including holobionts, that need new conceptualization and/or mathematical formulation. The product of the workshop is the formulation of new models that are known in advance to address issues that biologists regard as important. The new models might then be incorporated in the postdoc or student’s own research agenda for later analysis and publication after returning home
