BiodiversityXL Community Event bij het NIOO


The new BiodiversityXL Community Event is coming up next month! People from NIOZ, Naturalis, Westerdijk Institute, NIOO and broader will gather again on Thursday afternoon 22 June. For a deep dive in all aspects of biodiversity research, and the ecological facilities at NIOO.

What to expect? Hands-and-heads-on sessions! Together, we will indeed dig deeper in biodiversity (research). What is needed, where can we cooperate, what methods or projects shall we develop? And how can we make the next steps and opportunities really concrete? Stay tuned.

But also expect the launch of a new ecological research facilities website, meet ups for lab assistants or PhD candidates, tours on the NIOO campus and science bites from citizen science to serious games. So, a cross-fertilising diverse mix of a lot of ‘function’ and also fun. All of this set in the exceptional building and ecological garden of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) on summer day 22 June 2023.

You are invited!

Please save the date in your calendar, if you haven’t done so already : )

Registration will open very soon.
