The Penn State Center for Pollinator Research is hosting the fifth International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy on
June 3-6, 2023, with an optional evening welcome reception on Saturday, June 3rd.
It has been thirteen years since the inaugural International Conference, and there have been significant advances in our understanding of the drivers of pollinator declines, the tools to monitor and predict these declines, and strategies to conserve and expand both managed and wild pollinator populations. Moreover, it is clear that broader insect communities are experiencing similar challenges, and can benefit from the strategies developed for supporting pollinators. The theme for this year's conference is understanding and leveraging networks to support pollinator health, from gene networks to ecological community networks, to scientific networks.
AGM presentations (no scheduled workshops) will be held in person in Rome on 22nd and 23rd March 2023.
International Conference on Apiculture and Honey Bee Biology aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Apiculture and Honey Bee Biology. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Apiculture and Honey Bee Biology.

Despite on-going efforts, biodiversity is deteriorating worldwide and this decline is projected to worsen with business-as-usual scenarios. The UN Biodiversity Conference will convene governments from around the world to agree a new set of goals for nature over the next decade through the Convention on Biological Diversity post 2020 framework process.
The conference will consist of two parts. The first is going to be the conducted online on 11-15 October 2021, and the second is going to take place between 5-17 December 2022 in Montreal, Canada.

The workshop "Identifying key outcomes and important knowledge gaps from EU-funded projects on pollinators" will be held live in Brussels on Monday 10th of October 2022, h. 10.30-16.00. A detailed agenda will follow.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together representatives of selected EU-funded projects and policy-makers in order to share knowledge, identify R&I needs and gaps, and define common messages and recommendations in order to contribute to bee and pollinator health, sustainable pollination services, and pollinator monitoring.
- When? From the 5th-8th October 2022
- Where? In Berlin
- Why “Citizen Science for Planetary Health”? Because the health of our planet is at risk. To preserve and support the well-being of all life on Earth, we need the commitment and efforts of everyone – policy makers, the public, business, science and research. Citizen science offers effective and innovative ways to do transdisciplinary research and influence decision-making in multiple areas and ways. Citizen science is particularly suited to connect diverse fields and diverse actors in the common endeavour of collaborating in research.
