The Faculty of Science and Education, Busitema University and partners from Germany (Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences and Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences), are co-organising the International Symposium on ‘Multidisciplinary Approach to Conserve and Farm Edible Insects for a Circular Food Economy in Uganda (CONFARMED SYMPOSIUM)’, with funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The symposium will take place from 19th to 21st February 2024 at the Rock Classic Hotel, Tororo. It brings together selected key stakeholders from academia, research, government and the private sector to share experiences and identify synergies for initiating an international collaboration on selected entomological, socio-economic, and technological aspects of edible insect collection, farming, waste recycling and use to contribute to a circular food economy in Uganda and beyond. The scientific presentations from this symposium will be submitted for publication in the Special Issue: Conserving, farming, and commercializing edible insects for a circular food economy: multidisciplinary perspectives in the International Journal of Tropical Insect Science. The Special Issue is also open to further submissions from across the world that contribute relevant international perspectives related to the theme of the symposium.
