Landscape 2021 will bring together scientists from across disciplines with key actors to explore whether and how diversity and diversification can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture. Promising approaches reduce trade-offs between high productivity and use of external resources, the provisioning of ecosystem services, biodiversity and soil health as well as robust economic perspectives, social justice, cultural values and recreational opportunities. We hypothesise that while diversification provides sustainable solutions at different scales, it is the landscape or territoriales scale where synergies and trade-offs between social and environmental objectives become tangible. Conference contributions will include research from natural and social sciences, inter- and transdisciplinary approaches on topics related to the diversification of crop and livestock production systems across scales.

38 sessions with 175 oral presentations and 83 poster presentations have been selected and are organised in six clusters:

Sessions highlight the state of the art in agricultural landscape research and promote critical exchange on pathways to more resilient and sustainable agriculture. Each session will last 90 minutes and include 3-6 presentations (decided by session organisers).

10 Masterclasses are organised, each will last 3 hours and host about 15-40 participants (prior registration). Masterclasses are interactive sessions to show, learn and discuss new tools, methods or emerging topics in hands-on intensity. They attract senior and junior researchers alike and are an excellent way to spread and test scientific ideas and to reinforce scientific networking. Conference participants are asked to sign up to one of the parallel masterclasses when registering to the conference.

A special marketplace will be dedicated to presentation and discussion of research products for utilization in practice and policy, such as apps, decision support systems, knowledge systems, new co-operations and the like.

Post-conference workshops are on September 23rd, 2021
