ONLINE Training Course: Methods of Microorganism Detection in Soil, Water and Food
SIMBA partners are happy to announce the first SIMBA training course that will take place online over four days (9-10th, 16-17th) in October 2020. The online course will focus on Methods of Microorganisms Detection in Soil, Water and Food.
How can microorganism and the microbiome be utilised to increase plant resilience and sustainability throughout the food system? During this free online training course, you will learn about the microbiome, and methods to detect and apply microorganism in soil, water and food to support more sustainable agriculture and food production through the implementation of novel biofertilizers (microbial consortia), and more efficient delivery methods (biochar, amendments, nanomaterials). This training course is organised by University of Parma (UNIPR), with lectures taught by experts from the SIMBA project, as well as international guests.
Course content and modules
This course aims to encourage scientists, technologists and practitioners to consider SIMBA project concepts for the development of a more sustainable agriculture and food production through the implementation of novel biofertilizers and more efficient delivery methods. All lectures will be held online and more details will be provided after acceptance to the course.
SIMBA partners from UNIPR, Luke, ENEA, NIOZ, NIVA, Bielefeld University and CCS Aosta will teach on lectures throughout training course.
