Add event to calendar vCal

General aim of this conference organised by the Belgian Biodiversity Platform (Belgian DIVERSITAS National Committee), with a specific focus on the Belgian context:

  • Research on the linkages between biodiversity and public health is an emerging issue of topical interest that nevertheless has not received much concerted attention in Belgium to date. Considering that the issue attracts the interest of various scientific disciplines, including biodiversity, public health and social sciences, an interdisciplinary approach is called for. Promoting new linkages and collaboration amongst these disciplines, to propose appropriate new research ideas and topics is of priority interest.
  • The expertise arising from such interdisciplinary research potentially has substantial added value for policy making. To promote the integration of such expertise into relevant policy at different levels, a transdisciplinary approach is called for to ascertain the involvement of relevant stakeholders from different sectors of society in the development of a research agenda and projects.
