  • This is the 5th seminar that we together have arranged in Herning linked to the Agromek Fair We had a similar seminar in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2022 (2020 cancelled due to the pandemic).

    As a member of NJF or EurAgEng you will get a discount. Please contact your national contact for membership in NJF or EurAgEng. Students get a discount independent of membership.

    NJF (Nordic Association of Agricultural Science)  is an association open for Nordic and Baltic researchers, teachers, advisors, manufacturers and other people interesting in agricultural science and innovation, and this seminar highlights especially agricultural engineering for a sustainable future. EurAgeng is a European Association within Agricultural Engineering in Europe, please visit for more information. 

    The reason why we have linked these seminars to the agromek fair, is mainly the golden opportunity for networking. People from companies as well as universities and research institutions & advisory service from the Northern and Baltic countries have joined the former seminars also with presentations. In order to stimulate to this networking through exchange of knowledge and experiences, we also may accept presentations at an early stage in your project as well as ideas and solutions for improved common education and advisory services and not only final project-based presentations. After the seminar, the presentations will be gathered as PDF proceedings and be downable for all participants (if accepted by the author). You can choose if you want to hold an oral presentation or a poster presentation.

    When you click on the ‘registration’ site, you will get the possibility to tag off for kind of participance, and you may also upload your abstract now or later (but within deadline). When register, please fill in a title of your abstract (so we have an idea  about your abstract and later presentation). The acceptance of abstract will follow shortly after deadline.
