On behalf of the European Association for Bee Research (EurBee) I have a great honor and pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th Congress of Apidology (EurBee 9) convened under the motto: “Save the bees for our future”.

The conference intends to promote knowledge exchange and international cooperation and to enable further exchange of up-to-date scientific information on different aspects of managed and wild bees among researchers, teachers, students, and experts in extension. EurBee has become the main European event for bee scientists studying how bees respond to climatic changes, and to discuss problems regarding bee health, conservation, ecology, diversity, pollination, beekeeping and colony losses.

The six world-renowned experts in bee science are invited to give keynote lectures to present the latest developments in their research fields. Each morning and afternoon will commence with a plenary lecture, followed by three parallel symposia. Scientists from Europe and other regions of the world are welcome to Belgrade to exchange recent advancements and ideas that emerge from fundamental and applied research.

The conference serves as a connection platform for top European research in Apidology and hosts the pan-European research projects and networks. EurBee 9 congress should contribute to identifying new approaches, tools, and techniques to meet future needs and challenges facing bee science.

We will do our best to make the EurBee 9 successful and enjoyable and are look forward to seeing you in Belgrade, Serbia, September 20-22, 2022.

Sincerely Yours,

Ljubiša Stanisavljević

President of EurBee
