Forum Landscape, Alps, Parks

The Forum Landscape, Alps, Parks is a platform in the field of research into landscape, the Alps and protected areas. It works to increase knowledge about landscapes and processes that change them, and implements research results effectively. The complexity of the issues involved means a variety of methods, approaches and experience are required, as well as multi-lateral collaboration between the disciplines of natural, social and economic sciences.

Les résidences secondaires en question : état des lieux et perspectives

Les résidences secondaires touristiques sont au cœur de nombreuses tensions. Lits froids, augmentation des prix du foncier, financement des infrastructures urbaines, étalement urbain, faiblesse des revenus induits attendus, captation des richesses par un petit nombre, sont autant de phénomènes qui cristallisent les tensions. En témoignent la votation de 2012 en Suisse visant à limiter le nombre de résidences secondaires par commune ou encore l’accroissement du montant des taxes de séjour dans nombre de communes valaisannes et en France. Parallèlement à ces éléments biens connus, émergent aujourd’hui également un certain nombre de questionnements autour d’un parc immobilier vieillissant dont la réhabilitation et la mise en conformité n’est pas tâche aisée face à la multitude des propriétaires, dispersés et aux logiques parfois divergentes.

EGF-Eucarpia Joint Symposium 2019

On behalf of the European Grassland Federation (EGF), the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding (EUCARPIA), Agroscope and ETH Zürich, we would like to invite you to the EGF-EUCARPIA Joint Symposium, to be held at ETH Zürich, Switzerland, from June 24 to June 27, 2019.
Grassland-based ruminant production systems often rely on sown grasslands, either regularly re-sown permanent pastures and meadows or leys in a crop rotation. Productivity of these ecosystems depends on the availability of high quality forage crop cultivars, the right association of these cultivars in mixtures and on optimized management practices. The main aim of the EGF-EUCARPIA-Symposium-2019 is to bring together scientists from both fields and thus enable fruitful discussions and interactions.
