Bee research for the needs of practice: PoshBee’s fourth practice abstract is now available

PoshBee’s fourth practice abstract has been published on the EIP-AGRI platform and is now available for you to read here. Based on his experience, Norman Thürmer of the Imkerverband Sachsen-Anhalt e.V. shares recommendations aiming to maximize the efficiency of the work invested in the project. Some of these suggestions include:

  • Thorough planning of the bee purchasing.

  • Appointing a fixed contact person for all EU formalities in case some partners lack previous involvement in EU projects.

  • The use of an additional communicator intended to facilitate communication between the scientific community and the beekeepers, specifically to query all parties involved in small time windows. Due to the difference in work between beekeepers and scientists, this approach would prevent discrepancies which could have early negative impacts on the study.

PoshBee will continue to submit practice abstracts to translate important project research and results for the needs of practitioners.
