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

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.

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.
