GGBC Annual Meeting 2019


The third annual meeting of the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre is here. We meet up for a lunch-to-lunch meeting with focus on research and outreach within biodiversity.

For the third time the Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre invites our members and those of the general public with an interest in biodiversity for a two day meeting with a focus on increased collaborations. The meeting provides us with a chance to meet potential future collaborators within the centre but also to introduce ourselves to those who might ask themselves: What is the GGBC and what do they do?

The program includes lectures on how humans are connected to nature around us, as well as interesting research conducted at the centre. Attendees will have opportunities to learn about our partner organisations and our offices at Bioteket, located in the Botanical Building at the University of Gothenburg.
