Legumes Translated Partner, Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), will organize the fifth international workshop within the frame of the ‘Protein Paradoxes’ project of the Leibniz Research Alliance ‘Sustainable Food Production & Healthy Nutrition’.
The workshop aims to develop a set of novel future scenarios for better-utilizing grain legumes with a focus on food systems in Europe by addressing the following questions:
What impact do change consumption patterns have on grain legume production?
How does climate change affect future protein supply?
How does global protein demand change resulting from continuous population growth?
International experts from the UK, Finland, the Netherlands and Germany will facilitate the scenario design and provide insights into cutting-edge research. Based on the developed scenarios a scientific publication will be developed and all participants are invited to contribute.
The workshop aims to provide Post Docs, PhD candidates and other young scientists with the skills to face the societal challenges of sustainable protein production, consumption and health in transdisciplinary networks.
Date: 1 - 2 October 2020
Location: Berlin, to be announced
Cost: Free of charge and costs for travelling and accommodation will be subsidized after examination
Deadline for registration: 27 June 2020
