Mobilising natural regulation mechanisms, monitoring, diagnosing and anticipating risks to crop health

INRA’s Sustainable Management of Crop Health (SMaCH) metaprogramme is organising a seminar to launch its new projects for 2014.This year’s focus is on “mobilising natural regulation mechanisms, monitoring, diagnosing and anticipating risks to crop health”.

Published on 05/22/2014

SMaCH is holding the seminar as a part of its science outreach efforts. The aim is to disseminate information about the work of the SMaCH metaprogramme, to foster information exchange among new project participants and the scientific community, to encourage the scientific community to explore issues related to the focus area, and to galvanize future oriented thinking on new avenues of interdisciplinary scientific study.

The seminar will be held on 17–18 December 2014 at the Centre Maurice Ravel, 6 avenue Maurice Ravel, 75012, Paris, France.
Enrolment in the seminar is free. Registration is required at: https://enquetes.inra.fr/index.php?sid=13852&lang=fr
