Event description: 

We plan to make the BSSS Annual Meeting in the International Year of Soils a special one!

There is much to celebrate for Soil Science in the UK. We are beginning the path to WCSS in Glasgow which will be an excellent opportunity to highlight soils science research in the UK. New opportunities are underway such as the Centre for Doctoral Training, the Global Food Security 'Soil and Rhizosphere Interactions for Sustainable Agri-ecosystems' (SARISA) programme  and the Soil Security Programme which will help us to grow multidisciplinary research that will lead to improved sustainability, productivity and management of the environment. With new technologies and increasing collaborations across disciplines, soil science is at the dawn of a new era.

This is truly a reason to celebrate soil science research in the UK and around the World and you are invited to join the celebration during this one day meeting;

  • Celebrating the British Society of Soil Science
  • Celebrating the International Union of Soil Scientists
  • Celebrating the start of our Journey towards the WCSS in Glasgow in 2022
