Global Food Security congress

9-12 April 2024
The triple ‘Cs’ of climate, covid and conflict, and other recent short-term shocks to the food system, have emerged against a background of longer-term stresses, adding the issue of food system resilience to the already-recognised sustainability agenda. There is therefore an urgent need for food system change both to improve health and environmental outcomes in fairer and more equitable ways, and to enhance resilience to further shocks and stresses. Building on the momentum from the UN Food System Summit and recognizing that the 2030 target year of the Sustainable Development Goals is on the horizon, this 5th Global Food Security Conference will bring together science, business and policy to address this need.

5th Plant Microbiome Symposium 2024

17 - 21 June 2024
The 5th Plant Microbiome Symposium will continue the tradition of (now) annual meetings of experts on the plant microbiome from all over the world. With these meetings we stimulate the exchange of information and ideas among researchers from around the world and working on a wide spectrum of disciplines and perspectives around the common theme of the plant microbiome. A selection of invited speakers will go beyond a standard conference talk, and will present their most exciting/unpublished results and expand their talk into the broader context of the field. They were invited to present stimulating or even provocative ideas, all of which should provoke lively discussions and the development of new ideas and research directions.
