Call for abstracts: DIVERSIFOOD Final Congress "Cultivating diversity and food quality"

The final DIVERSIFOOD Congress "Cultivating diversity and food quality" will be held at the Congress Center in Rennes, France, from 10th to 12th December 2018. The DIVERSIFOOD project "Embedding crop diversity and networking for local high quality food Systems" aims to evaluate and enrich the diversity of cultivated plants within diverse agroecosystems to increase their performance, resilience, quality and use through a multi-actor approach. FiBL is a Project partner.



Abstracts for oral or poster presentations at the final  DIVERSIFOOD Congress "Cultivating diversity and food Quality" can now be submitted. The congress will be held at the Congress Center in Rennes,  France, from 10 to 12 December 2018. The call for abstracts is open until 31 May 2018. For more information and (online) abstract submission: https://symposium.inra.fr/diversifood2018/

The Scientific Committee will select the abstracts received and will give a feedback to contributors in early July.

The DIVERSIFOOD Final Congress will be open for external oral speakers and/or poster presentations.

It will provide inputs to shape DIVERSIFOOD messages for the future on how to better embed crop diversity for resilient sustainable food systems.

DIVERSIFOOD results and key lessons will be shared, covering complementary approaches:

  • Underutilized/forgotten crops: multi-actor and on farm evaluation
  • New approaches of plant breeding for diversified and sustainable farming systems
  • Community biodiversity management
  • Diversity and sustainability within food systems: new relationships among actors
  • Paradigm shift for multi-actor and transdisciplinary research
