Climate change: challenge for training applied plant scientists (AGRISAFE)

Description:

One of the fundamental aims of the project is to make specialists and future specialists in agriculture and crop production aware of the possible effects of climate change on farming, after which they must be taught how to reduce or eliminate the unfavourable effects of these changes. The demonstration of the cause and effect relationships involved in climate change will help to change attitudes to environment protection. It is therefore essential to spread this knowledge to as wide a public as possible. The results achieved in the course of the project will not only be published in the form of scientific papers, but will also form the basis of talks and pamphlets aimed at farmers and food consumers in general, in order to make them aware of the likely effects of climate change and of how these can be mitigated in the interests of achieving secure food supplies.
