We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The 2017 JRC workshop on control and management of agricultural land in IACS (Integrated Agricultural Control System) will be organised from Monday 29 May (14:00) to Wednesday 31 May (16:00) in Ghent, Belgium.
The workshop is co-hosted by the Agriculture and Fisheries Department of Belgium-Flanders.
Mr Jerzy Plewa, Director-General of The Directorate General for Agriculture and rural development (AGRI), will attend some sessions of the workshop.
This workshop integrates established elements of our former Control with Remote Sensing (CwRS) kick-off meeting, Control Methods workshop and Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) workshop relating to the area-based schemes of the 1st and 2nd pillars of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
We have the pleasure to announce that the co-host is offering a social event on Tuesday, 30 May 2017. This involves a guided boat excursion through in the historic centre of Ghent, with complementary aperitifs and tapas. Departure will be at 19:00 from Korenlei 4A, at "Het Groene Boothuisje", (literally: the small green boathouse).
Please note that you must indicate whether or not you will participate in this excursion during the workshop registration process.
Registration will be available through the JRC's events registration module.
The deadline for registration is 23 May 2017. Please indicate whether you will participate in the social event and possibly on a single day.
NB: At previous workshops we noticed that some registrants who reserved a place did not attend. If you register please ensure that you do attend or, if you have to cancel, please inform us as soon as possible.
To safeguard the availability of seats and to efficiently manage our resources, we now operate a system whereby an unexcused “no-show” registrant will be excluded from subsequent GTCAP events.
The Venue is the auditorium Romain Deconinck of the VAC (Vlaamse Administratief Centrum), located next to “Gent St.Pieters” Railway Station,
Koningin Maria Hendrikaplein 70
