The Centre for Soil Ecology (CSE) was established in 2010 by the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) and Wageningen University and Research (WUR) to bring together soil ecologists in Wageningen. However, as soil ecology is happening all across the Netherlands, there is need to transform the CSE into the National Centre for Soil Ecology (NCSE) to connect soil ecologists across the Netherlands.
We organise a kick off the National Centre for Soil Ecology with a symposium on the 14th of November 2023. The symposium will be held at Utrecht University, where we will provide a diverse program with presentations, a discussion on the format and future of NSCE, and a site visit to the NPEC facilities.
This day is meant to set the scene and provide the first networking event targeted specifically at soil ecologists working in the Netherlands.
