TOPICS:

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2023 Spring Workshop of the Research Network of Sustainable Bee Breeding, the Task Force within COLOSS for Breeding and Conservation.

The workshop will be held on March 9.-10.2023 (ending on the 10th at lunchtime) at the Faculty of Agrobiotechnical Sciences Osijek, University of Josip Juraj Strossmayer in Osijek, Croatia. It will follow after the Varroa control Task force workshop at the same venue (7.-8. March 2023).

The agenda will focus on the organisation of common activities and collaborative projects, such as:

  • Report on the common Breeding book: “Sustainable Bee Breeding: why and how”
  • Collaborative efforts in the area of honey bee diversity and breeding
  • Dedicated half-day section on queen mating control (hybrid form)

The workshop is open to COLOSS members, but preference will be given to RNSBB colleagues actively participating in the common activities. Part of the workshop will be held in the hybrid form, but not the whole workshop. Detailed agenda will follow.

The submission of an abstract is recommended but not required, unless you wish to have it published in the Workshop Proceedings.

Abstract should be sent to TF leaders (Marina Meixner or Cecilia Costa) until 20th of February.

TRAVEL INFO:

There are several options. Osijek is located 280 km from Zagreb and 180 km from Belgrade.

  • Frankfurt-Zagreb-Frankfurt – there are several flights every day.
  • On Monday, Wednesday and Friday there is flight Zagreb-Osijek (7:45 and 20:40) and OsijekZagreb (6:30 and 14:45).
  • On Monday and Friday there is a direct flight Munich-Osijek (10:10) and Osijek-Munich (12:10) by Croatia Airlines.
  • Buses from Zagreb to Osijek run almost every hour.
  • Option is also to use Belgrade airport, but then connection with Osijek with bus or train is not so convenient. If there are several people coming to Belgrade airport on same day/hours we could try to arrange transport.

Once registration is completed – please indicate which day (and time) and where you plan to come and leave (if you come by plane) – we will then contact each participant to help organise traveling.

From the beginning of 2023 Croatia will enter the Schengen zone, and therefore travel from EU countries will be much easier. The official currency in Croatia is the Euro.

Accommodation: suggestions will be provided soon.
