AgroServ: the science behind a sustainable food production

Online, 29 April 2024

Due to biodiversity loss and climate change, agriculture’s challenges are becoming more urgent than ever. The AgroServ project aims to revolutionise agriculture towards resilience and sustainability, bringing together a consortium of research infrastructures and offering a wide range of agroecological services that cover various levels, from molecular to societal. In doing so, AgroServ integrates stakeholders into a transdisciplinary research process. The project’s ultimate goal is to address agriculture’s pressing challenges and pave the way for a sustainable agrifood system.

On April 29, from 13.00 to 14.30 CET, this webinar will discuss the current state of agroecology in Europe and showcase how AgroServ’s services can enable a more sustainable food production system.

The webinar will feature a speech by Korinna Varga on partnership initiatives, Living Labs, and future challenges for European food production. Attendees will also receive updates on the AgroServ consortium’s progress and hear about completed or ongoing research projects from MetroFood. Moreover, information about the second call for proposals for the AgroServ project will be provided.

AgroServ Webinar: European Research Services on Agroecology

AgroServ Webinar

Online, 15 May 2023.

Ahead of its first annual conference, the Horizon Europe project AgroServ (in which LifeWatch ERIC partners) is pleased to invite you to its first webinar on European Research Services on Agroecology that will take place on 15 May 2023, 14:00 CEST via Zoom. 

This AgroServ webinar will give researchers the opportunity to connect with other practitioners interested in the field of agroecology and will extend discussions to promote the first European Research Services on Agroecology Conference and that will take place in June 2023 in Prague and online. 

Participants will learn about the AgroServ project, its agroecological services accessible via the project’s Catalogue Of Services, and how to apply to the next Call For Proposals that will be launched during AgroServ’s first annual conference taking place in Prague.

The project does not yet have a website, but you can follow the AgroServ LinkedIn page for updates!

AgroServ European Research Services on Agroecology Conference

European Research Services on Agroecology Conference

Prague, Czech Republic / Hybrid, 5–6 June 2023.

The first annual conference on research services on agroecology will be held by AgroServ (a project in which LifeWatch ERIC is partner) from 5–6 June 2023 at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (in-person and online).

The AgroServ project uses a multi-scale approach to respond to diverse research questions; from the level of the molecule and the organism, to the large-scale from farms to entire ecosystems. Since the transition towards a sustainable and resilient agricultural system needs to consider ecological, societal and economic factors, the active involvement of practitioners and scientists from different fields is crucial.

This first edition of the AgroServ Conference will thus be devoted to the research community where it will present the diverse agroecological services accessible via AgroServ and the different facets that shape research in the emerging field of agroecology.

To promote and encourage interdisciplinary approaches to address the agroecological transition, AgroServ’s first call for Transnational Access (TNA call) to access AgroServ services will be launched during this event.

Time will be devoted to discussions and hands-on workshops to brainstorm, meet researchers from different fields and to build ideas for potential proposals.

More information will be shared soon at this link.
