Damian Maye has been at Newcastle University today, giving a seminar for the Centre for Rural Economy, School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (SNES), Agriculture Seminar Series.
Some abstracts of the CCRI presentations are now available for the XXVIIth ESRS Conference, which took place in Krakow, Poland, from 24th to 27th July.
The CCRI was well represented at the 2016 RGS-IBG Annual Conference, this year’s theme being ‘nexus thinking’, an approach that aims to address the interdependencies, tensions and trade-offs between different environmental and social domains.
Damian Mayer and James Kirwan are once again very much involved in the annual RGS-IBG conference, where they are organising a session on food system sustainability and resilience and also co-presenting three research papers.
A second paper based on the key findings of the EU GLAMUR project has been published in a special issue of Sustainability which has open access.
A paper based on a study of cheese supply chains in the UK and Switzerland, which was co-written by CCRI researchers, has been published with open access by Sustainability. It is derived from research conducted as part of the EU 7th Framework Programme project GLAMUR (Global and Local food chain Assessment: a MUltidimensional performance-based approach).
The 2016 International Farming Systems Association Symposium is now calling for papers for the workshop “Boundary spanning between agroecological and conventional production systems: implications for pathways towards more sustainable production”.
The CCRI is to be well represented at the 2016 International Farming Systems Association Symposium, with sessions linking to three EU funded projects on which the CCRI is currently a working partner – Glamur, SUFISA and VALERIE
A CCRI research team is currently one of 15 pan-European partners working on an EU project called GLAMUR – “Global and Local food chain Assessment: a MUltidimensional performance-based approach”. A story on the project has just been published on the Horizon 2020 website.
Drs James Kirwan and Damian Maye have been invited to present two sessions at EXPO Milano on Tuesday 13th of October 2015, at an event being held in the European Union Pavilion.
