Event Overview
Welcome message:

Micro-organisms play a pivotal role in agriculture, from cycling nutrients in soils to the treatment and disposal of wastes arising from the agri-food industry. This conference will focus on the diverse roles played by micro-organisms across this sector, from increasing farming efficiency to safe environmental management, and the production of value added products from agri-food and bio-based waste streams. An understanding of new approaches and biotechnological possibilities will improve our ability to harness microbial processes to provide solutions for more efficient and sustainable agri-food systems with better environmental stewardship. This meeting will thus be of interest to academics, industry and government institutions.

Allied to the conference will be a one-day workshop on Irish phosphorus sustainability aimed at bringing together regulators, researchers and industry to discuss needed solutions for agricultural sustainability and food security especially in the context of phosphorus (P) management. Through keynotes, panel discussions, and stakeholder/researcher breakout groups we will: a) discuss scenarios for effective P management; b) increase awareness of existing P recycling technologies and envision their implementation within the agri-food and waste treatment sector; and c) develop a market understanding for technological/management gaps requiring further research.

This Focused Meeting will take place on 21–23 June 2017 at the Metropolitan Arts Centre, Belfast, UK.

Organising committee: John McGrath, Vincent O'Flaherty, Katrina Macintosh, Jason Chin and John Quinn.

The meeting will run over three days, with the All Island Phosphorus Sustainability Workshop on day one followed by the conference on days two and three. Delegates have the option to attend the workshop and conference either in their entirety, or as standalone events.
