The corruption of agricultural science

What determines where scientific research is focused in universities and research institutes? How much freedom do academics have to determine what they research? Is there too much concentration on patentable and saleable products – on seeds rather than systems? This session will hear from a range of academics and researchers to discuss these issues. 

Speakers: 
Dr Michel Pimbert (Coventry University, Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience)
Dr Jonathan Latham (Bioscience Resource Project) 
Helena Paul (Econexus)
