Integrated Nutrient Management Summer University course taking place in June 2023
The course, Integrated Nutrient Management, will be hosted this summer, co-organized by Aarhus University, Hokkaido University and Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality
In June, Aarhus University is hosting the course Integrated Nutrient Management. This summer course is organized alongside Hokkaido University and Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.
The course provides insight into the practical integration of farmers, municipalities, farm companies, research, consultancy, and legislation in managing agricultural systems and nutrients, particularly nitrogen. Denmark is a leading country regarding the integration of intensive farming, livestock production, soil, and environmental protection, socio-economy, and relationships to rural development.
The course includes case studies from Western Denmark, excursions, and a series of environmental legislations called the Water Environment Plans (WEP) used as a teaching tool. Students will have the chance to link theory and practice, acquiring new expertise and gaining a holistic view of the management of nutrients on a global scale and with environmental concerns.
AU Summer University welcomes Danish and international full-time students, exchange students, and free movers.
