Training in Evidence Synthesis

Are you interested in conducting a meta-analysis or systematic literature review?

This week-long spring school will teach you how to conduct a systematic review or systematic map step-by-step. You will leave knowing what is needed to conduct rigorous evidence syntheses and what support is available to help you.

Networking in Agri-food Systems Transformation

Are you working in research on: food systems, agriculture, farming, sustainable production, supply chains, agro-ecology?

You will spend the week networking with other researchers in the field, brainstorming ideas around the role of evidence synthesis in transforming our food system. After the workshop, all participants will be encouraged to jointly author a manuscript calling for a commitment towards rigorous evidence synthesis in the field.

Who is it for?

You should feel welcome to join the Spring School if you work in any agri-/food/farming research area and have an interest in setting your work in the context of a larger system transformation.
