The IV PhD Students Meeting in Environment and Agriculture (EEDAA) aims to create a space that stimulates the interaction between PhD students, in order to streamline the scientific discussion and highlight those who will become tomorrow’s researchers. The EEDAA will take place on November 11 and 12 at the University of Évora – Mitra Campus. All researchers working in these areas are invited to participate and submit an abstract to this Meeting. However, only abstracts submitted by PhD students will be considered for oral communications.

This event is organized by ICAAM – Institute of Mediterranean Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and IIFA – Institute for Advanced Studies and Research, University of Évora and is supported by UNIMED – Mediterranean Universities Union, which gives this EEDAA an international context. On the other hand, we will have in this edition an active participation of researchers from the current MeditBio of the University of Algarve, who together with ICAAM will in 2020 be part of the new research centre MED – Mediterranean Institute for Agriculture, Environment and Development.

EEDAA is particularly aimed at PhD students developing their theses in Biology and Biochemistry, Veterinary Sciences and Animal Production, Agricultural Sciences and Food Sciences as well as Ecology, Environment and Landscape. The meeting will be structured in four thematic sessions, with conferences by guest researchers and PhD students, and will include a workshop on “Communicating Science”.

It is also an excellent opportunity to get to know the beautiful city of Évora, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Welcome to Évora!
