The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies representing plant, crop and agricultural and environmental sciences across the globe.
The GPC seeks to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training, to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.
English: Stress Resilience Symposium – Deadlines now extended!
Two scientists from the University of Toronto (Canada)'s Scarborough campus have developed a new research framework for the agricultural sector that offers evidence-based understanding of the relationship between short-term yields, long-term sustainability and biodiversity.
By 2050 at least 9 billion people will need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary change. The food security challenge will increasingly encompass the triple burden of malnutrition – undernutrition, obesity and micronutrient deficiencies. The urgency of the issues has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research. The Second International Conference on Global Food Security therefore aims to deliver state-of-the-art analysis, inspiring visions and innovative methods arising from research in a wide range of disciplines.
Wageningen, the Netherlands
This symposium serves as a meeting place for research and industry, facilitating the application of models throughout the chain while enhancing knowledge transfer from different application areas. It will bring together researchers and commercial people interested in the development, calibration and application of modelling in the entire field of the horticultural supply chain, from production over harvest to storage, retail and even consumption.
