Planning for STARS 2020

The Plan

Such was the success of the “one-off” STARS conference in January 2019, that we are holding another event in January 2020.  STARS 2020 will have a different feel, with a more outward facing focus; engaging with strategic partners in the wider world of policy, industry and agriculture looking at ways in which soil science can inform, support and learn from them.   

The conference is again taking place at the Low Wood Bay Hotel on the banks of Windermere in the Lake District. It will run from 20th to 22nd January 2020.

The agenda is now available here

The conference handbook is available here.

Please contact the STARS office if you would like further information.

The Venue

The Low Wood Bay hotel has been chosen again not least due to it’s beautiful and inspiring location. It is able to accommodate a large number of participants and provides spacious and comfortable conference, meeting and workshop rooms.
