It’s clear that food and agriculture systems today face complex challenges which require integrated, innovative solutions from diverse scientific fields. However, it isn’t always easy to find opportunities for cross-sectoral dialog and collaboration. This is the driving force behind the new food democracy cluster for doctoral researchers at HU Life Sciences Faculty (and beyond). The goal is to bring together doctoral students with research interests across the food and agriculture sector from all angles- public policy, economics, production, biology, psychology, gender, health and many more. By creating an informal, ongoing setting for scientific exchange, we can get to know what other doctoral researchers are working on and pave the way for interesting collaborations. This will be done through hosting regular presentations, guest talks, field trips, industry networking drinks, research prizes, and other events that you would like to see happen. The food & democracy cluster for doctoral research at Humboldt University, within the wider Berlin agrifood community, will create an open space for scientific exchange and discussion...but right now, we need your input.


When: Monday, March 19th, 2018, 6:30pm

Where: Seminarraum 2113, Haus 9, Philippstraße 13, Campus Nord


All doctoral students are welcome to join this informal first meeting to share ideas and discuss this new research cluster.
