15–17 September 2010 Implementation in Inter- and Transdisciplinary Research, Practice and Teaching
In a knowledge society, research questions, processes and results cannot be disconnected from everyday practices. Politicians, funding bodies and society at large increasingly demand of researchers to propose efficient ways of how to use abstract findings in concrete situations and as a common good. From the very start, implementation strategies should therefore include processes of embedding the research in its social and scientific contexts, recursiveness and negotiation with non-academic actors, and testing the expected impact through ‘real-world’ experiments. How exactly to bring research results to fruition, integrate theory and practice and build truly participative collaborations are key issues of inter- and transdisciplinarity. Keynotes includes experts in the fields of public health, new media, urban planning, sustainability, action research. Please visit our website for further information. Deadline for paper/poster/workshop submissions: 3 May 2010.

7–11 July 2013 9th European Conference on Precision Agriculture (ECPA)
Lleida (Catalonia, Spain)
Precision Agriculture is a multidisciplinary approach to modern agriculture. It is using methods and techniques from other disciplines such as geostatistics, sensors, remote sensing, automation, ICT, etc. to help farmers increase their productions and product quality and reducing at the same time the environmental impact of agriculture. It has been in constant evolution since first developing stages in the late 80s/early 90s.
The size of ECPA meetings (200-250 attendees) allows focusing on specific topics related to all PA practices while discovering what our colleagues are working on, enabling synergies and co-operation. After 18 years, the 9th European Conference on Precision Agriculture will be held in Lleida (Catalonia, Spain) under the auspices of the Universitat de Lleida and the International Society of Precision Agriculture.

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum
Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel
2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.
The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.
