Discover the English version of the last issue of the series ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ : Marine and coastal sciences in Occitanie n° 24 (131 pages, July 2019)

This document was published with the support of Occitanie/ Pyrénées-Méditerranée Region, I-SITE MUSE and IFREMER.
More than 150 teams of scientists and experts from the Occitanie Region participated in the 24th issue of the Dossiers d’Agropolis International series, dedicated to marine and coastal sciences in the Mediterranean. These teams come from 15 universities and engineering schools, 13 national research institutions, as well as—and this is a first for this series—private businesses—namely start-ups, consultancy firms, national and even international companies having a presence in Occitanie— and civil society organisations. Thus, without being exhaustive, this Dossier reflects the diversity, dynamism, originality and multidisciplinary nature of the scientific, applied technological and citizen research pertaining to marine and coastal sciences, both in Occitanie and at national and international levels.

Registration now open for the 4th International Conference on Global Food Security Achieving local and global food security: at what costs?, 15-18/06/2020, Montpellier

The 4th International Conference on Global Food Security addresses the topic of food security at all spatial levels from local to global, and from an interdisciplinary and systemic food systems perspective. It aims to better understand environmental, nutritional, agricultural, demographic, socio-economic, political, technological and institutional drivers, costs and outcomes of current and future food security. Interactions with contextual factors including climate change, urbanisation, greening the economy and data-driven technologies will be central. The conference addresses the triple burden of malnutrition: hunger, micronutrient deficiencies and obesity. It explores the state-of-the-art of interdisciplinary insight, addresses the trade-offs that occur - and synergies that can be sought -in transforming food systems. These are aimed at reconciling the competing environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals at different levels across spatial and temporal scales. Contributions which bridge themes or scales, foster interdisciplinarity and integration or address interactions between science and non-academic stakeholders (civil society, private sector and policy makers) are particularly welcome. Congress organized by Elsevier, I-Site MUSE, Wageningen University with the partnership of Agropolis International, CIRAD,IRD,INRA, CGIAR.

Deadline for abstract submission extended to 30 September 2019 for iCROPM2020 (Second International Crop Modelling Symposium /February 3-5, 2020, Montpellier)

Four years after the 1st International Crop Modelling Symposium in Berlin (iCROPM2016), crop modelers from around the world will meet at the iCROPM2020 Symposium in Montpellier, France to exchange on advances in crop modelling and identify challenges and new opportunities for future research.

iCROPM2020 will focus on recent improvements and applications of crop simulation models to better support agricultural production and food security under global change.

All types of crops and cropping systems (arable, grasslands, intercrops) and world regions will be considered, including high and low inputs systems, with relevance for large agricultural enterprises to smallholder farmers.
