ALTER-Net Conference: Ghent June 17-19

Rethinking the Biodiversity Strategy beyond 2020

What should the post 2020 European biodiversity strategy look like? How will research contribute to this strategy and help to define its goals?

The 2019 biennial ALTER-Net and EKLIPSE, entitled The EU Biodiversity Strategy Beyond 2020: Research insights and needs for biodiversity and ecosystem services in Europe, will explore these very questions. With the central theme of the post 2020 European biodiversity targets and the potential contributions of scientific research, we will take a proactive role in the consideration and shaping of this critical strategy.

Researchers, decision-makers and practitioners from all disciplines and fields are invited to contribute to this conference.
