The Italian Association of AgroMeteorology, as it is stated in the Statute, has among its main objectives those to enhance, promote and protect the figure of the agro-meteorologist and to promote education, training and updating in agro-meteorology. In this perspective, one of the aims of AIAM has always been to support the initiation of young scholars to research on agro-meteorological issues.
For this reason, also this year there is a competition for the award of scholarship prizes for theses (see Bando Tesi) of agro-meteorological topics submitted during the academic year 2019/2020 and a Call for Best papers 2021 (see Bando Best paper), a recognition (symbolic) for the best research contributions in agro-meteorological disciplines published during 2020.
In addition, thanks to the generous gesture of our friend and member Vittorio Marletto, this year there is an additional call for an award for a doctoral thesis or post-graduate master / post-doctoral on agro-meteorological issues (see Bando di Studio “Vittorio”).
As per tradition, the official proclamation of the winners will take place also this year during the works of the AIAM Annual Conference – “Research and innovation for the management of climatic weather risk in agriculture “, which will be held online June 30 – July 2, 2021, and the young scholars will be given the opportunity to present the main results of their research.
All documentation for participation in the calls must be submitted to the organizing secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 30th of May 2021
