Africa in profile

Exhibition in Leuven

As one of the actions to mark the “International Year of the Soil 2015” and in collaboration with among others the RMCA, the Soil Science Society of Belgium presents an exhibition on African soils. Through a series of magnificent African soil profiles, the exhibition raises awareness of the great services rendered by soils to society in terms of natural, economic and cultural values.


The opening of the exhibition is preceded by a scientific colloquium 'Africa in Profile 2015' on 4 December 2015. Our Director general Guido Gryseels and our colleague Olivier Dewitte (Natural hazards service) will give a presentation. The French version of the African Soil Atlas will also be presented.
