Reminder: Workshop on Nutrition

Dear colleagues


Obviously, nutrition plays a central role for bee health and well-being.


However, many aspects are still not well understood.


Accordingly, WG3 of COLOSS has decided to organize a workshop on the timely topic bee nutrition in Slovenia.


There will be three invited speakers: Katherine Aronstein (USA); Karl Crailsheim (Austria) and Josef van der Steen (The Netherlands).


The Agricultural Institute of Slovenia is located in a beautiful place, especially in local autumn, and I am fully convinced that the local team will do a great job in organizing the workshop as was the case in the past.


Please find further information in the attached files. Those amongst you, who are principally interested in joining please contact asap Ales Gregorc (


The few remaining slots will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.


Yours sincerely


Peter Neumann
