The Research Network of Sustainable Bee Breeding, the Task Force within COLOSS for Breeding and Conservation, is organizing a meeting on “Apis mellifera morphometry: prospects for building an internationally recognised and openly consultable reference database”. The workshop will be held on September 13-15, 2017 at the Council for Agricultural Research and Economics, Agriculture and Environment Research Centre (ex Honey Bee and Silkworm Unit), near Bologna, Italy.

The Agenda will focus on collection of ideas for building a proposal to set up a publicly accessible database of honey bee subspecies reference samples and wing images. To be efficient, the meeting is restricted to a small group of experts, who will share their ideas, plan an inventory of the available wing images and discuss sustainable and ethical sources of funding for the online database. The outcome of the meeting will be shared with the active members of RNSBB.
