Course Integrating disciplinary approaches in health sustainable development, resource- and conflict management

Tuesday 8 January - Tuesday 29 January 2019
Learning to reflect on a PhD research project from an integral perspective is crucial for becoming able to identify and exploit synergies between complementary disciplines, their theories, methods and working styles. Furthermore, it facilitates a convincing communication about research concepts, approaches and results with colleagues and other target audiences outside one’s core discipline(s). In total there will be four meetings of 4 hours. PhD candidates will be asked to do (interdisciplinary) group work to prepare for the next meeting.

NAEM 2019

Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 February 2019

There will be 2 plenary sessions, 20 parallel sessions, and 2 poster sessions. You are cordially invited to register!!

IOBC-WPRS Working Group Meeting

Wednesday 27 - Friday 29 March 2019
The aim of the meeting is to bring together the latest insights on current topics in landscape management for functional biodiversity, including the management for multiple ecosystem services, the identification of promising crop and non-crop management options to support biodiversity-based pest management, and initiatives to meet the challenge to halt the ongoing decline of important farmland species. Promising areas for future research will be identified.

9th International Granulation Workshop

26 - 28 June 2019
The granulation conference will provide an excellent opportunity to gain a complete overview of how the field of granulation stands at present with the presentation of a range of papers from both academia and industry.
