Organiser's description (via The Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Systems at the University of Edinburgh):

This year, the University of Edinburgh’s Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Systems will host its first annual symposium on the Easter Bush Campus.  

The theme for this inaugural event is ‘Supporting Food Systems Transformation with Data’.  

The goal of the symposium is to highlight some of the work by researchers and their global collaborators, to support our vision of healthy people and a healthy planet, through regenerative and ethical food and land use systems.

The Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Systems is an interdisciplinary group of approximately 40 staff and 40 PhD students.  

Our work comes under two broad themes – Food System Transformation, and Healthy People, Healthy Planet. Across and among these, we are concerned with the interface between science, policy and industry; data-driven innovation; and governance and ethics.  

The event will be held at the Roslin Institute on Friday 15 March in-person, with no hybrid option. It will start at 10 am, and will close at 4 pm followed by a drinks reception. Please note online registration will close on 4 March.

PhD students and postdocs are invited to submit a 250-word unstructured abstract to be presented as a poster at the symposium. Presenting authors for all accepted abstracts will have free registration. Submit abstracts by 5pm on 23 February to clarinda.brown@ed.ac.uk.
