28 August - 2 September 2022
We will organize a hybrid event for the INTECOL 2022 Congress, which means that we will have an onsite event with live presentations, and at the same time a virtual event with access to live sessions via a streaming platform.

Plant Science and Moleculair Biology Conference | GPMB 2022

1 - 3 September 2022
Following the phenomenal success of the previous six editions of the plant science and molecular biology conference, Magnus Group is delighted to present the “7th Edition of Global Conference on Plant Science and Molecular Biology" (GPMB 2022) to be hosted in a Hybrid format with both virtual and in-person versions at Paris, France. The global congress is a three-day event slated during September 01-03, 2022. The conference will be moving forward with its unique theme “Evaluating Plant Science Innovations for A Sustainable Green Future” and it will cover a wide range of critically important Plant Science and Molecular Biology.

NAC Nederlands Aardwetenschappelijk Congres 2022

5 - 6 September 2022
The 18th edition of NAC (Nederlands Aardwetenschappelijk Congres) brings together the research fields within the Earth and Environmental Sciences. The event aims to continue to provide a true interdisciplinary forum for discussion and for young scientists to present their research results to a broad audience

Ways forward: integrated fire management

19 - 30 September 2022
Integrated landscape fire management requires an overview of several disciplines. Therefore, the PyroLife Innovative Training Network contains four PhD courses based on understanding three aspects of landscape fire: 1) climate, risks and impact, 2) human dimensions and planning aspects, 3) science-policy interaction. These three courses are followed by a fourth course 4) integrated fire management, where the way forward towards building and implementing an integrated fire management is discussed and developed. This is the final course of this four-PhD-course series, focusing on integrated fire management.

NAEM 2022 (abstract submission call)

20 & 21 September 2022
The Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting (NAEM) is a two-day event organised by NERN and NecoV (Dutch - Flemish Ecological Society) and is supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). There will be 2 plenary sessions, 20 parallel sessions, and 2 poster sessions. You are cordially invited to register!!

International Plant Phenotyping Symposium (IPPS7)

Monday 26 - Friday 30 September 2022 (abstract submission deadline 15 April)
The 7th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium, brings together a multidisciplinary science community of plant biologists, ecologists, engineers, agronomists and computer scientists. In a rich and diverse networking environment we foster knowledge exchange, collaboration and innovation.

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.

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

Computer vison for animal scientists: tracking and pose estimation

10, 12 & 13 October 2022
During the Image analysis course, the foundation was laid for classical and modern computer vision techniques. During this continuation course we will go deeper into two image analysis techniques which are relevant for animal scientists: tracking and pose estimation.

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.

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.

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!
