Promoting Agrobiodiversity

Recent conference presentations highlight Framework's innovative approaches

When it comes to improving agrobiodiversity, the importance of knowledge dissemination and collaboration cannot be overstated. Recently, Framework Austria made progress in this field with the submission and acceptance of two abstracts for oral presentations at important conferences. These presentations shed light on our approaches aimed at increasing awareness of the value of agrobiodiversity-supportive measures.

Wissenschaftstagung Ökologischer Landbau

The first abstract, titled Wie erhöhe ich das Bewusstsein für und den Stellenwert von Agrobiodiversitäts-fördernden Maßnahmen? (How to raise awareness and value of agrobiodiversity measures?), was submitted to the sixteenth Wissenschaftstagung Ökologischer Landbau conference. Burgenland Farmer Cluster Facilitator and research scientist Dr Aliyeh Salehi had the privilege of presenting the paper on March 10, 2023, in Frick, Switzerland. The WOL conference serves as an important platform for discussing ecological farming and sustainable agricultural practices.

Dr Salehi's presentation highlighted innovative strategies for enhancing awareness and value associated with agrobiodiversity measures. By showcasing the Framework project and its objectives, participants gained valuable insights into practical methods that can be employed to promote the preservation and utilisation of agrobiodiversity. The presentation fostered collaboration and knowledge exchange among experts in the field.

European Geosciences Union (EGU) Conference

The second abstract, titled "Design and development of a new approach to increase the value of biodiversity in agriculture," has been submitted to the "European Geosciences Union (EGU)" conference. Dr Salehi is set to present this abstract on April 26, 2023, in Vienna, Austria. The EGU conference is renowned for bringing together scientists from various disciplines to discuss the latest advancements in earth, planetary, and space sciences.

The forthcoming presentation at the EGU conference will illuminate Framework's approaches to elevating the importance of biodiversity in agriculture. By exploring innovative techniques and methodologies, this abstract aims to inspire attendees to embrace biodiversity as a valuable asset within agricultural systems. The presentation will contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.


The acceptance of these two abstracts for oral presentations at important conferences marks another good milestone in the project's active research outreach about agrobiodiversity. The presentations are part of our ongoing work to raise awareness and promote the value of biodiversity in agriculture. By sharing insights and innovative approaches, experts like Dr Salehi continue to play a vital role in fostering collaboration, knowledge exchange, and the advancement of sustainable practices. We hope these presentations serve as catalysts for change, inspiring individuals and organisations towards further research. When people hear about the diverse knowledge creation and participation within Framework we hope they're encouraged to prioritise agrobiodiversity in their own work to benefit sustainable farming, ecosystems, and society as a whole.
