Workshop: Sustainable Intensification & Valuing Nature in Dialogue: enabling researchers to work across environment and farming policy interests

5 - 7 March 2019, Aston Conference Centre, Birmingham

The Valuing Nature Programme in partnership with the Sustainable Intensification Research Network (SIRN) invites applications from early-career researchers to take part in a free three-day workshop.

Government policies across the UK increasingly connect objectives for farming with the environment and broader natural capital approaches (e.g. 25 Year Environment Plan, Agriculture Bill).  These connections bring research challenges which will need novel and interdisciplinary approaches as policies aim to improve both agricultural productivity and the condition of the natural environment.

We seek applicants with experience in disciplines broadly related to Sustainable Intensification and/or Natural Capital who are keen to develop their ability to contribute to innovative interdisciplinary research across these areas.
There is no cost to attend the workshop, overnight accommodation (5 & 6 March 2019) and meals will be provided free of charge. Attendees will be expected to cover their own travel costs.

Application deadline is 10am 28 January 2019.
Those invited to attend the workshop will be notified by week commencing 4 February 2019.
