We encourage papers and workshop proposals exploring the following areas:

(1) climate mitigation and food security

(3) adapting agriculture to sustain food security

and further topics. Find the full description of all topics here.

As at previous congresses, EurSafe 2021 welcomes submissions from a broad range of disciplines, including philosophy, science and technology as well as agricultural science, law, economics, and sociology.

The topics of the congress range from the four key themes across fundamental ethical issues and areas that relate to veterinary medicine, transparency in the food chain, professional food ethics, etc. Besides more conceptual and theoretical contributions, we also welcome papers and workshop proposals that use case studies and studies that examine and propose guidelines on how to deal with key challenges of food security.
