Tropentag 2020

Food and Nutrition security and its resilience to global crisis


The annual interdisciplinary conference on research in tropical and subtropical agriculture, natural resource management and rural development (TROPENTAG) is jointly organised by the universities of Berlin, Bonn, Göttingen, Hohenheim, Kassel-Witzenhausen, ZALF e.V., Ghent University (Belgium), Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (Czech Republic), BOKU Vienna (Austria) and the Council for Tropical and Subtropical Research (ATSAF e.V) in co-operation with the GIZ Advisory Service on Agricultural Research for Development (BEAF).

Due to the current Corona pandemic Tropentag 2020 will be organised as a virtual conference by ATSAF e.V., Germany. However, dependent of the pandemic development, the organisers will try to have livestream presentations, coming from lecture halls at our main partner universities (with a limited personal attendance of participants active at these sites). Further, parallel sessions will be organised in form of webinars or similar and pre-recorded oral poster presentations in guided online poster sessions. Anyway, the organisers will ensure that TT20 attendees will have the possibility to interact with the presenters and chair-persons. All students, Ph.D. students, scientists, extension workers, decision makers, politicians and practical farmers, interested and engaged in agricultural research and rural development in transition and developing countries are strongly invited to participate and to contribute.
