3rd LCIRAH Annual Conference ‘Developing methods in agriculture and health research’

An A4NH partner, The Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) is holding  its 3rd Annual Conference on 13-14 June 2013 at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) Camden Campus in London.

The conference will focus on methodological and integrative aspects of research in agriculture and health. It will feature the work of researchers in nutrition, economics, anthropology, veterinary science and related fields engaged in agri-health research. It aims to offer the opportunity for exchange of ideas, while providing a space for discussion and initiating new projects across disciplines. More information on abstract submission and registration can be found at LCIRAH Call for Abstracts

Deadline extended for Call for abstracts and Registration is now open:  deadline for submission is extended to 28.02.2013

We welcome the submission of research projects that explicitly draw links between agriculture and health from both developing and developed countries and fall into one of the following broad themes:

  1. Climate change, food and health
  2. Food value chains and health
  3. Food-borne diseases and health
  4. Agriculture, changing food consumption and health

We seek both theoretical and empirical works and request that abstracts focus specifically on the methodological and integrative issues of the research. We encourage submissions of projects involving original data collection.

We particularly welcome abstract submissions from doctoral students, early career researchers and researchers from developing countries.
