You will meet the beekeepers we have been working with over the past few years and witness first-hand the real and lasting impact that beekeeping is having on their communities.
This twelve-day trip will also provide you with the opportunity to visit Uganda’s closed-canopy forests and to encounter some of its fabulous wildlife.
The 2020 Annual Meeting of PoshBee's full project assembly will take place from 14-16 January in Marsille, France.
PoshBee aims to support healthy bee populations, sustainable beekeeping and pollination across Europe. Integrating the knowledge and experience of academics, beekeepers and farmers, PoshBee will:
- provide the first pan-European quantification of the exposure hazard of chemicals to managed and wild bees;
- determine how chemicals alone, in mixtures, and in combination with pathogens and nutrition, affect bee health, and;
- meet the need for monitoring tools, novel screening protocols, and practice- and policy-relevant research outputs to local, national, European, and global stakeholders.

The first full project assempbly meeting of the B-GOOD project will take place on 2 & 3 December 2019, hosted by the University of Coimbra, Portugal.
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
6. Testing of Micro-organisms (microbial pesticides)
The 46th edition of the International Apicultural Congress - Apimondia - will take place from 8 to 12 September 2019 in Montréal, Canada.
The theme of the congress in 2019 will be: Working together in agriculture. This is a challenge that can be solved only by providing sufficient information to all actors in this field.
Beekeeping is an agricultural industry that depends largely on farmers. They grow different crops on the land, using different plant protection products that can also pose a threat for bees. Good cooperation between farmers and beekeepers is therefore indispensable, since farmers also need bees for the production of certain agricultural plants that depend on pollinators.
More information about the congress and how to register is available here.
The 2019 International meeting of COLOSS will provide an update on the network’s achievements and future directions, including meetings for COLOSS Core Projects and Task Forces.
