Meet the experts

Thursday 29 August 2019 from 17:00 to 18:30

Lumen building, garden terrace and rooms 1&2

This is your chance to meet some of the #WSC2019 experts and ask them all the questions you can think of! What were the big moments that changed their career? What brought them to specialize in the use of soil functions for policy support, digital soil mapping or innovative methods for investigating microbial soil processes? What do they consider the current research challenges in their field? This is also your chance to ask that specific question that you wished you had asked during the oral sessions but did not have the opportunity to do so. Moreover, you can ask them for feedback on your own research activities and get their advice. Do not miss this opportunity!

To spark the conversation, each expert will bring an object that links to their area of expertise. You can decide who took the nicest, most surprising and most interesting object. Meanwhile, we provide free drinks, snacks and live music by the Festa Chordis ensemble in an informal setting.

Come, ask, share and vote!
