Today ended a three-day scientific conference of the Euroleague network entitled “Green (r) evolution: from molecules to ecosystems” divided into 4 thematic sections: Molecule, Organism, Community, Ecosystem.
The virtual campus of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, built specifically for the purposes of organizing conferences in a hybrid form, has hosted nearly 400 students from all over the world studying at science universities associated and partner universities within the Euroleague network (ELLS). ELLS is a network of leading life sciences universities in Europe and partner universities, cooperating in the fields of natural resource management, agricultural and forestry, natural, veterinary, nutrition, food and environmental sciences. The State Forests were the strategic partner of the conference.
Students met to discuss extremely important issues that fit into a broader picture of the most important issues and challenges for the academic community of natural science universities.
During the two-day conference, workshops and lectures took place, including:
Doing what matters: career goals through the lense of effective altruism, which was led by Maya Cygańska, a graduate of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences and an intern at the European Parliament,
How to make your stress an ally not an enemy? led by Aleksandra Juszczyk,
From zooplankton (Cladocera) is a lake ecosystem led by Edyta Zawisza.
During the Euroleague Scientific Student Conference, almost 30 poster sessions were held, where students presented their scientific achievements. Nearly 70 posters were submitted and presented to participate in the conference, which could be viewed on our virtual campus.
As part of the EUROLIGI conference at SGGW, a meeting of employees was also held: ELLS General Assembly and Forum “Actions towards a more sustainable future, lesson learned from the crisis”, which was an opportunity to exchange experiences at the expert level. Representatives of affiliated and partner universities discussed the challenges of ELLS during several thematic meetings and workshops.
