Together, SIANI and SLU Global host Agri4D, a large biannual national conference. This conference also has an inter-twining biannual smaller meeting for young researchers since 2014. For 2016 it was proposed to carry out the smaller conference with the thematic field of “multifunctional landscapes”. A desired outcome of the meeting is to contribute to networks and multidisciplinary exposure for young researchers in relevant fields. This conference also gives an opportunity to expose interesting and relevant new research within the Swedish resource base to media and interested stakeholders. 

This year’s young researchers meeting was held in Gothenburg, Sweden on 7-8 June with the participation of 15 young researchers who presented their research and discussed with a group of peers receiving at the same time comments from three senior researchers in the field.

All attendants were encouraged to work within multidisciplinarity and to collaborate with others: not only does it make good science, but it helps solving questions, and is a lot of fun.

The full proceedings from the meeting will soon be published in this website.
