Between 24-28 June 2014, Marc Schut participated in the 2nd Science Incubator Workshop on Weeds and Invasive Plants in Benasque, Spain. The objective of the workshop was to bring together both the youth and the experienced members of the weed research community to discuss the future of weed research. Ecologists, biologists, agronomists, economists and sociologists engaged in horizon scanning activities and developed proposals for manuscripts. Each day would included discussion sessions, work in break out groups and a three hour walk in the Pyrenees during which manuscript outlines were discussed.
It was in many ways a refresing and inspiring workshop. More information on the event can be found online: http://andinallanos.weebly.com/
