Such was the success of the “one-off” STARS conference in January 2019, that we are holding another event in January 2020. STARS 2020 will have a different feel, with a more outward facing focus; engaging with strategic partners in the wider world of policy, industry and agriculture looking at ways in which soil science can inform, support and learn from them.
The conference is again taking place at the Low Wood Bay Hotel on the banks of Windermere in the Lake District. It will run from 20th to 22nd January 2020.
A draft agenda is now available here.
More details will be posted on this page as they become available. In the meantime, please contact the STARS office if you would like further information.
