Alnarp symposium on Agro-ecosystems in Pakistan
November 28, 2012 - 12:00-17:30
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) holds a one day symposium on agro-ecosystems in Pakistan at its Alnarp Campus. This mini-symposium highlights agricultural sciences in Pakistan, the challenges and opportunities. It furthermore aims to identify areas of collaboration of research in Pakistan and Sweden.
The direct incentive for the initiative is the fact that SLU and other Swedish universities have hosted a large number of PhD students over the last five years. Many of these new PhDs will return back to Pakistan and set up their own research group.
The symposium gives an opportunity for these PhDs to present future directions of their research to a broad audience and to shape collaborative contacts. A keynote talk will be held by Professor Farooq from the Faculty of Agriculture at Faisalabad University of Agriculture. Dr Farooq has a broad experience and a impressive track record on agro-ecosystem research in Pakistan and abroad.
Venue: Crafoordsalen, Navet, SLU Alnarp.
The day will start at 12:00 with registration and a Pakistan style lunch. For participation in the complimentary lunch your registration is needed here. For more information, please contact Dr. Teun Dekker.
