Day of Young Soil Scientists 2017


Wednesday February 15, 2017
The Royal Academies of Belgium for Science and the Arts, Brussels

Every year the Soil Science Society of Belgium is organizing a Day for the Young Soil Scientist. This day, the floor belongs to the new generation of soil scientists: they get the opportunity to showcase their work and get to know other (young) soil scientists. For all members, this day is an excellent opportunity to learn about new research initiatives undertaken by the different research groups, both in Belgium and abroad.

  • Venue: Royal Academy, Hertogstraat 1, Brussels – Ockeghemzaal
  • Date: 15/02/09 from 13:30 – 17:00
  • All research groups are invited to send abstracts for oral presentation or posters

The scientific programme

  • Oral presentations (10’ presentation + 5’ discussion each) – selection will be based on content and distributed over the research groups.
