International conference on the science behind food and energy sustainability at the University of Sheffield from 13 to 14 September 2011

March 23rd, 2011 by Events

The first international Project Sunshine conference, Shine, will take place from 13-14 September 2011 at Sheffield City Hall.

Shine 2011 focuses on the global issues relating to food and energy sustainability through collaborative cross-disciplinary research and technological innovation – a partnership between science, business and governments.

The global issues of food, energy and environmental change are complex and inter-connected.

Integrated, flexible solutions, appropriate for different scenarios in different parts of the world, are needed.  Solutions involve individuals and organisations from across many areas of academia, business and the public sector: founded upon high quality science, interpreted by business and policy makers, and translated into actions which make a difference.
