Damian Maye and Mauro Vigani are currently in Portugal, presenting an update on progress to date on Work Package 2 under the Horizon 2020 SUFISA project.
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.
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”.
Drs James Kirwan, Damian Maye and Mauro Vigani will be attending the second meeting of the SUFISA project in Paris on 15 – 16 December.
