This symposium is organized in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Società Ticinese di Apicoltura (“STA” - beekeeper's ass. of southern Switzerland). STA is a member of the national associaton of beekeepers Apisuisse. In line with Apimondia tradition, the audience will be mainly beekeepers, and will provide an opportunity to promote interactions between beekeepers and scientists.
