Launching of submissions to the Mediterranean Forum (MEDFORUM) 2021

After its previous versions in 2016 in Montpellier, France and 2018 in Bari, Italy, CIHEAM and ICARDA launch jointly the submission of applications for the MEDFORUM 2021. MEDFORUM 2021 will take place under the 7th Farming System Design (FSD) Symposium on 21-24 March 2021 in Tunisia. The general theme entails climate change with focus on "Designing Climate Smart Agricultural Systems for a Sustainable Transition in the Agri-food Systems of the Dry Areas".

Young scholars, researchers and current PhD students can now visit the forum website to review the general and specific themes and submission requirements under which their applications can be prepared. Applicants are mainly asked to prepare a short motivational video in which they should clearly state their arguments and innovative methods of onstage presentation.

Around 20 to 25 student applicants will be selected for financial support which will include the covering of registration and/or accommodation fees. Since the MEDFORUM 2021 is being organized under the 7th FSD Symposium, applicants are also asked to submit an abstract requested by the FSD. We wish all applicants good luck.
