PoshBee's legacy presented at SLU's New Center for Bee Research & Extension
Last month the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala (SLU) hosted an open house to celebrate the launch of their new center for bees - "Center for Bee Research & Extension". The centre will be a platform for researchers in beekeeping, wild bees and pollination with the aim of strengthening research and education on honeybees in Sweden.
More than 100 beekeepers, bee health consultants and scientists attended the two-day programme with lectures from different researchers, guided tours and a seminar on the EU project B-THENET. The associate professor from the Department of Ecology at SLU – Joachim Rodrigues de Miranda – had the opportunity to present PoshBee's legacy: a summary of the EU project on the effects of pesticides, pathogens & nutrition on bee health. Joachim made a lasting impression by distributing PoshBee promotional materials, among which the PoshBee Legacy Brochure generated significant interest. Due to its valuable insights into the project's findings, the brochure caused the supplies to run out swiftly and prompted numerous inquiries for additional copies. To address this demand, the brochure is also available for download, ensuring that those who missed out on the printed version can access its insightful content digitally.
