Inmaculada Batalla

Short CV

Inma Batalla is a postdoc at BC3. She holds a PhD in Sustainability of Livestock Systems at Universidad del País Vasco, a MsC in Rural Development (Agricultural economics and rural sociology) at the University of Córdoba and a BCs in Agricultural Engineering at the University of Extremadura.

Her scientific career has focused on the sustainability assessment of agrifood systems with a multicriteria perspective. She has wide experience in holistic analysis of farming systems using economic, social and environmental indicators to give a better comprehension of the situation of primary sector through a systematic vision. She has worked with special emphasis on exploring synergy and trade-offs among the different impacts of agrifood systems, taking special attention to livestock systems using different approaches (sustainability frameworks, LCA, one health perspective, participatory processes, policy analysis…).
She has collaborated in some research projects related to sustainability assessment, in one of them, she got a PhD fellowship from the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INIA) to develop her PhD in Neiker Tecnalia.

Nowadays she is participating with BC3 in european project SWITCH ( Switching European food systems for a just, healthy and sustainable dietary transition through knowledge and innovation) .

She is member of RED REMEDIA-Spanish Network for Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases Emissions from the Spanish Agroforestry Sector. She also takes part in the working group: CAP, Food, Land Use in the context of the Think Sustainable Europe .

She is really interested on exploring the interactions amount different indicators and its implications in different contexts to enhance sustainable agriculture practices able to empower rural areas and agriculture communities in the context of sustainable food systems.
