Dear colleagues

Welcome to the new

Union of European Academies for Science applied to Agriculture, Food and Nature

This was undertaken under the responsibility of the Czech Academy of Agriculture (CAAS) ,currently President of the UEAA. Many thanks to Professor Vilem Podraszky and to Ing Vaclav Hruby, secretary of the CAAS and their colleagues. This would not have possible without the financial help of the Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry, thanks to the past president Dr Kerstin Niblaeus and her collaborator Mr Magnus Stark.

This new web site illustrates the revival of this
