The Council for Agricultural Research and Economics (CREA) has opened a call for scientists working on organic agriculture to take part in a short (10-5 days) study stage at one of its research centers/units (see the call at www.entecra.it, unfortunately in Italian only).

The aim of the call is to promote future collaborative projects between European and CREA scientists in organic production area.

The call requires that a joint project is done with a CREA scientist working on organic agriculture.

Candidates should prepare a joint project, proportional to the length of the stage, about organic milk production and can contact [email protected].

In this case, the stage will be held at the Fodder and Dairy Production Research Centre at Lodi (40 km from Milan), and the scientist will be involved in current research projects on organic milk production.

The call considers a reimbursement of € 2.100, all expenses included.

Project proposals must be submitted by 30 May 2016, hence proposals should be sent as soon as possible, in order to prepare the stage project.CREA
