Join us at the 62nd IALB / 12th EUFRAS / 9th SEASN Annual Conference in Dresden

We are pleased to invite you to the 62nd IALB / 12th EUFRAS / 9th SEASN Annual Conference in Dresden from September 10th to 14th, 2023. The theme of this year`s conference is the role of education and extension in the transformation process of agriculture – in the context of climate change, ensuring nutrition and societal demands.
This topic was deliberately chosen in view of the global as well as regional challenges in almost all areas of economic and social life. The dramatic events of recent years have made it clear how, in addition to the structural changes already taking place on farms, the entire agricultural sector is exposed to international influences. In addition, rapidly advancing climate change and its consequences for the availability of natural resources are leading to new environmental awareness. The need for ensuring food production and the provision of agricultural raw materials has made consumers aware of the “systemic relevance” of the agricultural and food industry. On the other hand, society’s expectations of production and marketing in regional value chains geared to resource conservation and animal welfare have continued to rise. The resulting new realities for agricultural practice and the people working in it call for education and advisory services that are tailored to needs and fit for the future.
How this transformation process is taking shape under the general conditions in Saxony will be the subject of the conference. 25 years have passed since the last IALB conference in Saxony. A suitable period of time to take up many an operational development story. Likewise, consulting has undergone a profound transformation. The Saxon State Office for the Environment, Agriculture and Geology, with its extremely wide range of tasks, offers the prerequisites for an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge in a special way. Accordingly, you can expect a wide range of information as a basis for a lively and interesting exchange at the conference. We want to take this into account by offering a varied Conference Program. The registration portal is available on the Conference webpage!
We would also like to point out the possibility to participate in the Poster Session.
With Dresden as a Saxon city of art and culture as well as the charming surrounding area, there are numerous tourist attractions to discover.
We have arranged room contingents for overnight stays in close proximity to the conference center. Please note that the contingents are limited in number and can be booked for a limited period of time. Of course, you can also use other accommodations.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dresden in September!
