Online event in Zoom on November 8th 2023, at 2-4PM (CET time)

Following the huge success of the last year’s edition, the Organizing Committee of the Symposium is inviting early career scientists, interested in disseminating and getting feedback on their research, to submit their abstracts (link) dealing with various aspects of Water-Energy-Food Nexus. Related studies on land use, ecology, economics, and governance are also welcome.

Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words should be submitted before September 1st, 2023 and include:

  • Tentative title
  • Information about authors (names and affiliations)
  • Aim of the research
  • Brief methodology
  • (Preliminary) results and conclusions

By the end of September, you will be contacted by the Organizing Committee if your abstract is accepted. A participation certificate may be issued to participants upon request. Also, please join the LinkedIn event where you can find other participants and boost your network!

By 2050, the OECD estimates that there will be 9 billion people on Earth. In addition, it is estimated that food production will increase by 60%, energy consumption by 80%, and water needs by 55% globally – all of which could affect land use patterns. Water-Energy-Food Nexus (WEF) is vital for addressing these complex challenges. Adopting a nexus approach facilitates a more comprehensive understanding of the interactions between natural resources and promotes integrated solutions for a more sustainable future.

In this symposium, we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art, gaps and advances in WEF research. We invited well-known keynotes and prominent early-career scientists to cover a wide range of topics including water and energy footprints, the role of forests and food waste, governance, and many more. Sounds interesting? Then see you in November!
