Outreach at Estonian Conferences

The Estonian University of Life Sciences hold and attend conferences sharing the project...





Project participants from EMU organised the national conference ‘Agriculture and Environment 2023’ alongside EMU's Research Centre on Organic Farming.


The free conference, held on the 28th November, aimed to provide an overview of the results of environmental monitoring and research in Estonia focusing on: soil, surface and groundwater, biodiversity and food quality.


Farmers, consultants, researchers, students, authorities, policy makers and all interested parties were welcomed to the EMU campus in Tartu, with some joining the hybrid event online.


Silva Vilumets gave a presentation on "The benefits of landscape elements to beneficial insects," which shed light on ongoing work of FRAMEwork in Estonia, and attendees were afforded a comprehensive insight into the results obtained from environmental monitoring and research endeavours in the Kanepi kihlkund Farmer Cluster.


The conference counted as training towards the KSM ~ Estonia's Environmentally Friendly Management grant for farmers and was held as an extension of the MAK 2014–2020 measure "Knowledge transfer program in the field of activity of agriculture, food and rural economy".


A further conference on Plant Protection was also held and advertised to FRAMEwork Cluster farmers in the period.
