pan-european assessment, monitoring, and mitigation of stressors on the health of bees

14th Symposium on the Hazards of Pesticides to Bees

Our Eva has been before to this conference and she thought it very good. It pretty much hits all of the PoshBee buttons, so perhaps we should think of getting involved in a more structured manner. These are the different streams for abstract submission:

1. Risk assessment/Risk management

2. Honeybee Brood Testing

3. Laboratory/Semi-field/Field Testing

4. Non-Apis bee Testing

5. Monitoring

6. Testing of Micro-organisms (microbial pesticides)

The 46th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress

The Congress will cover a broad spectrum of beekeeping and apicultural sciences, including state of-the-art lectures, plenary sessions and various symposia within each of the Apimondia Standing Commissions. The Montréal Congress will strive to be a showcase of world-wide advancements in the science of apiculture. Emphasis will also be placed on presentations or discussions of topics that are of high prominence in the beekeeping community or that challenge our concepts of modern beekeeping, through roundtables and special interest group  sessions. The poster sessions, offering lively interaction between presenters and participants, are regarded by many as the heart of the Congress. We will also endeavour to use web-based streaming of all plenary sessions to allow participation of a new category of virtual registrants in aspects of the Congress.

2019 International Conference on Pollinator Biology Health and Policy

The 2019 International Pollinator Conference will be highlighting recent research advances in the biology and health of pollinators, and linking these to policy implications.

The conference will cover a range of topics in pollinator research, from genomics to ecology, and their application to land use and management, breeding of managed bees, and monitoring of global pollinator populations.

PoshBee will be presented at the event via posters and scienific talks given by partners.

4th Business & Entrepreneurial Economics - BEE 2019 Conference

The 4th Business & Entrepreneurial Economics – BEE 2019 conference tends to gather experts, researchers and other professionals from the fields of business, entrepreneurship and economics. The conference will include presentations and discussions that have a particular focus on the practice and gaining essential insight in current trends.

Conference participants will hear from thought leaders and have the opportunity to share their ideas, practices and discuss important issues. The objective is to utilize scientific, research, educational, business and entrepreneurial potential in order to contribute to a sustainable development.

All-Ireland Pollinator Plan Conference

Local Authority/Council staff, Councillors, Planners, Engineers, Landscape Architects, Sustainability, Parks and Gardens staff, are invited to this conference on how public lands can be managed to support biodiversity.

Pollinating insects have suffered huge declines in recent decades, with one-third of our 99 Bee species at risk of extinction. The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan is a shared plan of action that aims to reverse those declines by increasing pollinator-friendly habitats across the island.

Training will be provided on the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan as well as an interesting line-up of guest speakers, who can offer advice on what to plant for pollinators; how to alter mowing regimes; and road verge maintenance. This will be an opportunity for knowledge exchange and to learn from the experiences of other project managers.

Apimondia Symposium

The Symposium will produce current figures on how valuable this contribution is, in quantity and in monetary terms. Secondly, insects - specifically wild and domesticated bees - pollinate grasses, shrubs and trees in our environment and thus assure seed production and multiplication of many of these species – we call it environmental service. Let us not forget the products which bees provide as a kind on “by-product” of their pollination service – honey and more - to make money, which, again helps to ensure food security.

18th Annual NAPPC International Conference

NAPPC is a growing, collaborative body of more than 160 diverse partners, including respected scientists, researchers, conservationists, government officials and dedicated volunteers.

NAPPC is succeeding with major programs to protect pollinators, to raise pollinator-related issues, and to benefit the health of all species – particularly those most threatened.

6th International Muğla Beekeeping and Pine Honey Congress

During the congress, all shareholders of the sector on the international level, providing theoretical information to our beekeepers, and increasing their experience in the related fields is aimed. In line with this purpose, guests will be encouraged to stay overnight as in our previous congress, and a camp atmosphere that is open to discussion and share of ideas on the technical and economic problems of beekeeping in Turkey and the World with the participation of national and international delegation, who are experts in their fields, and beekeepers.

In addition to invited speakers, abstract submissions made for the scientific topics decided by the Scientific Committee will be evaluated carefully and accepted verbally and/or as poster for the "6th International Muğla Beekeeping and Pine Honey Congress".

Propolis in Human and Bee Health Conference

The scientific program of the Second Propolis Conference focuses on the latest developments as well as the future outlook of all related aspects of propolis research and application, such as chemistry, biological activity, importance to bees, analyses, standardization, synergy, medical applications, applications in food industry, etc. A rich social program throughout the conference will also be provided for informal interactions. You will have the opportunity to become a member of the International Propolis Research Group, which was formed in autumn last year, based on the energy and enthusiasm generated in Glasgow.

8th EurBee Congress of Apidology

This meeting follows the Eurbee congresses in Udine, Prague, Belfast, Ankara, Halle, Murcia, and Cluj Napoca. The EurBee congresses are held every two years and are a major international forum for discussion of the latest and most important results in bee research. The meetings bring together scientists from different fields and serve as a venue for exchanging ideas that emerge from basic and applied research.

EurBee has become the premier event for researchers studying different aspects of wild and managed bees, and how they respond to environmental changes to address problems with species conservation, pollination services, beekeeping management and colony losses. The venue of Eurbee8 is the Campus Ledeganck of Ghent University, which is located near the historic centre of Ghent, a medieval city in the heart of Europe.
