NIOO/PE&RC Biodiversity Data Workshop: Boosting the Impact of Biodiversity Data
22 April 2024
Are you a researcher studying biodiversity and do you collect and/or analyse biodiversity relevant data? And do you want to increase the impact of your work and data? Join our biodiversity data workshop! Data is worth so much more if others can find, understand and (re)use it easily. In this workshop you will learn the ins and outs of data and metadata standards, repositories to store your (meta)data, and their valuable contributions to improving the findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability (FAIR) of your data and thereby the transparency and impact of your research.

Working language of the symposium is Dutch.
Knowledge integration in transdisciplinary research
21 May 2024 (11:30-13:00)
It is often unclear what social scientists do in transdisciplinary research in sustainability transitions. We often hear that “we need to involve social scientists” because the grant scheme demands it. But what does this mean in practice? How do social scientists participate in knowledge integration and what knowledge to they bring back to their ‘own’ fields? We will discuss these and other questions with a number of WUR researchers from the natural and social sciences who are experienced in transdisciplinary research and with the audience.

5th Plant Microbiome Symposium 2024
17 - 21 June 2024
The 5th Plant Microbiome Symposium will continue the tradition of (now) annual meetings of experts on the plant microbiome from all over the world. With these meetings we stimulate the exchange of information and ideas among researchers from around the world and working on a wide spectrum of disciplines and perspectives around the common theme of the plant microbiome. A selection of invited speakers will go beyond a standard conference talk, and will present their most exciting/unpublished results and expand their talk into the broader context of the field. They were invited to present stimulating or even provocative ideas, all of which should provoke lively discussions and the development of new ideas and research directions.
