[Free Conference] Science, Technology and Innovation for Ecological Transformation in Agrifood Systems

The National Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation is a democratic space to express proposals and aspirations for the sector and is scheduled for June 4-6, 2024. Preparatory events have been taking place all over the country since November 2023 (thematic and free sessions and municipal and state conferences). Systematization reports are produced at these events, which are essential if the discussions held are to contribute to the construction of the National Conference.

In this context, the free conference “Science, Technology and Innovation for Ecological Transformation in Agrifood Systems” is being organized.

In the context of the “global syndemic”, which amplifies the challenges associated with the sovereignty and food security of vulnerable populations, it is necessary that public policies and actions related to national ST&I contribute to different types of farmers dealing with issues related to the threats to food production in the face of climate change, health impacts and social inequality.

The Free Conference was organized in preparation for the 5th CNCTI with the aim of debating agricultural research, facilitating collaborations and contributing guidelines and proposals to be taken to the 5th CNCTI. The proposals must be in line with the main thrusts of the ENCTI 2023-2030.

The debates will take place in person, at Embrapa’s headquarters, and online, via Google Meet, for registered participants only. Registrations can be made until April 11, 2024 by clicking on this link.

The event will take place from April 15 to 19, 2024, in a hybrid format (face-to-face and online), and will be broadcast on Embrapa’s YouTube channel.
