A workshop to help define UK participation in AnaEE.
A first UK workshop was held in May 2013 as a first step to explore UK capability for agri-ecosystems science. Outcomes from the workshop will contribute to defining UK participation in AnaEE. The workshop brought together some of the UK agri-ecosystems communities including funders (such as the Natural Environment Research Council), research institutes/centres (Rothamsted Research and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) and academia. Abad Chabbi was also there to present AnaEE. One of the main outcomes from the meeting will be to explore the possibility of a pilot action which could look at crop productivity in different ecosystems and agricultural practices, bringing together the capacities of the NWFP and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.
A second follow up workshop is being planned with wider participation early 2014.
