Wageningen Soil Conference 2019 (WSC2019)

Wageningen Soil Conference “Understanding soil functions: from ped to planet” August 27-30th, 2019, Wageningen, The Netherlands

Wageningen University & Research (WUR) is delighted to invite you to join the 4th edition of the Wageningen Soil Conference. The aim is to discuss the importance of soils. In the 2019 edition, the focus will be on “Understanding soil functions: from ped to planet”. To do this the WSC2019 will adopt a new style, with traditional conference talks in the mornings, followed by a range of scientific and interactive topic masterclasses in the afternoons.

Masterclasses will include a range of topics linking to four themes: 1) Soil functions for society; 2) Innovative methods for measuring soil functions; 3) Modelling & mapping of soil functions across scales; 4) Can we understand synergies and trade-offs between soil functions.  WSC also invites you to offer to lead a course as part of this week. Finally, if you would like to plan a side event or meeting in the afternoon, WSC can provide you with the venue. Get together with colleagues and discuss future project proposal ideas or have a project meeting, as part of the conference.

First Circular, plus Call for Masterclasses and more info are available at
