The Wind of Change in Academia: CIEC Conducts Its First Internet Conference
A Chinese proverb says: when the wind of change blows, some build walls, but some build windmills. Corona blows a strong wind to life in academia for which communication and exchange of ideas is an essential backbone. The wind of change caught also CIEC, the International Scientific Center for Fertilizers (CIEC). CIEC is an 88 years old club of scientists, who have been solely dedicated to fertilizers and soil fertility. CIEC is in its first year under Chinese presidency, and the new president is Prof. Lanzhu Ji from CAS in Shenyang.
