Do you think: sustainable food production is an important challenge of our time?


This workshop is designed together with the team of Swiss TD-Net for learning and actively training interdisciplinary (ITD) and transdisciplinary (TD) methods.
Applicants from disciplines that are familiar with challenges and finding solutions in food production systems (e.g. land scarcity, growing soil degradation, food safety, overexploitation of natural resources and higher ethical demands) or are interested in learning about it are eligible to apply.
Discipline examples are biology, ecology, law, architecture, geography, medicine, veterinary medicine, zootechnics, conservation, economy, social sciences, politics, ethics, animal science. This workshop aims to enforce the participants ITD/TD understanding of real-world problems and to teach valuable methods to pursue ITD/TD projects.
