Symposium ‘Towards Impactful Biodiversity Research: Initiating Interdisciplinary Collaborations’

  • 16 November 2023
  • Burgers' Zoo, Arnhem
  • NWO

On Thursday, 16 November 2023, the interactive meeting ‘Towards Impactful Biodiversity Research: Initiating Interdisciplinary Collaborations’ will take place in Burgers’ Zoo, Arnhem. It provides a venue for participants from the various disciplines within biodiversity research to come together, inspire one another and work towards creating an interdisciplinary biodiversity strategy.

 

From political scientists to biologists and from toxicologists to sociologists

The symposium is aimed at all researchers and experts who conduct research into or intersect with biodiversity: from political scientists to biologists and from toxicologists to sociologists. Pooling knowledge and experience relating to biodiversity research from these diverse areas of expertise allows opening up previously unexplored avenues for biodiversity research with an impact on society.

Make sure to register before Wednesday 1 November 2023 at 12:00 (CET). We aim to welcome participants from various expertises, to make sure all corners of biodiversity research are represented. Every participant will take part in two workshops of two different themes. During the registration, you are asked to indicate the preference by ranking the workshop themes from 1 to 4. We would like to maintain diversity within each workshop. In case a research discipline and/or career stage is over represented in (a) certain workshop themes(s), the organisation will allocate participants to workshop themes that is not necessarily their first choice(s) of workshop theme(s). In that situation, the organisation will do their best to accommodate their preferences that are aligned to their expertise.

Programme

Through a series of inspiring presentations and workshops, participants are invited to collectively identify obstacles, blind spots and knowledge gaps within the biodiversity research field in the broadest sense, and work towards creating an interdisciplinary biodiversity strategy. The symposium also provides a venue for researchers and experts from various disciplines to meet, allowing new collaborations and partnerships to emerge.

Host: Sietze Norder (UU)
Keynote: Anne Beaulieu (RUG)
Workshop leaders: Liesje Mommer (WUR), Corrine Lamain (CuCo, Centre for unusual Collaboration), Edwin Alblas (WUR), Anita Hardon (UvA/WUR), Hans de Kroon (RU)
