COLOSS Bee Nutrition TF Workshop 2020, France

REGISTRATION:

Registration fee: 40€ per participant (includes coffee breaks and two lunches).

Accommodation costs and social dinner are not included.

Registration deadline: Monday, March 16th

DESCRIPTION:

The Bee Nutrition Task Force (NUTRI TF) gathers independent experts in bee nutrition. We aim at developing a multinational network that will engage in discussions and research. The NUTRI TF wants to facilitate and develop collaborations to produce synergistic scientifically-sound outputs, and aims at harmonizing and standardizing research on bee nutrition.

We address nutrition as a major driver of bee health, as well as a common Beekeeping Management Practice, involving multiple stakeholders (e.g. beekeepers and beekeeping associations, researchers).

The TF aims at investigating nutrition from different perspectives and approaches: please see here.

SCHEDULE:

In this first annual workshop the old and new members of the COLOSS NUTRITION Task Force meet to organize the activities, and discuss our strategy. Abstracts may be submitted and selected for short talks. Posters are welcome.

Multiple topics will be addressed in more focused activities via parallel sessions.

Please contact the local organizer, or the NUTRI TF coordinators, for more information.

Archamps is a small village situated in France, at the border with Switzerland. It hosts a technopole, recently renamed ArchParc, that gathers hundreds of companies and a big Imax cinema, with all facilities to eat and stay.

The workshop will be hosted in the convention center of Archparc, which has all the facilities we’ll need (another link here).
