Summer School 2021 - Plant cell walls
Sunday 4 - Saturday 10 July 2021
The study of the cell wall is an important research frontier in plant biology. Over the past decade, the field has seen major technological and conceptual advances. In addition, the study of cell wall structure and metabolism has become an integral part of the research on plant development and the adaptation to abiotic and biotic stresses. A better knowledge of the cell wall is also essential for the optimization of lignocellulosic biomass processing procedures in the framework of the emerging bioeconomy.
World Recreational Fisheries Conference
Sunday 4 July - Thursday 8 July 2021
Our world is changing rapidly. We humans are changing. Urbanization, overfishing and animal welfare are tough and well known issues. The sport fishing sector will have to deal with these challenges. During this conference science and knowledge on these subjects will be presented and discussed.

PE&RC Day 2021
Wednesday 6 October 2021
In this year’s edition of the PE&RC day, we will take you on a journey back in time to explore how past species, populations, communities, and whole ecosystems responded to and recovered from large scale change and or recover from previous mass extinction events. How did the extinction elapse? What were the implications to species networks during previous biodiversity decline? What were the responses of species drivers of recovery and speciation? Touching on different ecosystems found around the globe, we will explore these insights gained from the past which serve as an essential repository of knowledge that we can consult to help save our remaining natural heritage.
