Mansholt Lecture 2019: the protein transition

The fourth edition of the Mansholt Lecture will take place in Brussels on Wednesday 18 September 2019. This year the Mansholt Lecture focuses on the protein transition.

It is about 60 years ago that Sicco Leendert Mansholt and his colleagues in Europe initiated the modernization of European agriculture with an emphasis on increasing productivity, farmers’ incomes, and food supply, with stable and affordable prices for producers and consumers. With the increasing production, land and resources become limiting; residuals of crop and livestock production become problematic waste; emissions related to production become a burden for the quality of soil, water and air; health issues related to production intensification become a major concern.

Location: Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts Paleis der Academiën, Hertogsstraat 1 - 1000 Brussels

More information and the exact times of the lecture will follow later.
