ReMIX H2020 - Intercrops

ReMIX Final Conference: registrations are now open!

Final conference registration
This event is a joint effort of the ReMIX and DIVERSify projects to boost the adoption of intercropping and delivery of its ecosystem services in Europe.

You can already register here

The conference  "Intercropping to boost agroecology in European Agriculture" by ReMIX and DIVERSify will be held online on March 23, 2021, from 9:15 to 16:45 CEST. 

The event is a perfect opportunity to discuss how species mixtures contribute to the shift to more sustainable food systems and preserve ecosystems, which are major goals of the EU’s Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies. Presentations from experts in the field and two panel-debates will deepen the role of intercropping in the EU’s Agri-food chains and agroecology. 

Take a look at the one day program with all the sessions:
