Oxford Talks // Conference on Localising Food Systems: The food-energy-water nexus issues of re-distributed manufacturing

This conference is intended to stimulate exchange and debate about the related issues in re-distributed manufacturing (RDM), food systems, and food-energy-water nexus issues at enterprise, local and regional levels. This event will be truly multidisciplinary, welcoming contributions from engineering, agriculture, natural sciences and social sciences. It will also encourage debate and share perspectives with business, local authorities and stakeholders in the food, energy and water sectors.

The conference will offer opportunities to:

  • Showcase research in these areas including the results from our Food, Energy, Water Local Nexus Network (LNN) through plenary talks and poster presentations
  • Examine key research questions for future exploration, with a view to establishing potential research collaborations through structured breakout discussions
  • Foster the extension of the community of researchers and stakeholders for sustainable local food-energy-water nexuses through face-to-face networking during the lunch and drinks sessions.

DutchDubai // The Interconnection of Water, Energy and Food presented at the Dutch Pavilion at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, UAE

The Dutch pavilion in the World Expo, hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 2020, will focus on the interconnection of water, energy and food. As the second-largest exporter of agricultural products in the world, the Netherlands wants to support collaboration as well as minimising the footprint of our interactive ecosystem by building the pavilion with local resources and locally rented building materials.
