The EEF Congress is held every two years. The Congress is organised by the Federation, in partnership with a Member Organisation in the country in which the meeting will take place.

BES, GfÖ & NecoV Joint Annual Meeting: Ecology Across Borders

This is the first time the BES, GfÖ and NecoV have held a conference together and we are delighted to be working together to deliver a meeting of 1,200 leading ecologists from around the world in Belgium. The joint meeting aims to build closer ties between the vibrant academic ecological communities in Europe, and meets the strategic objectives of all three of the ecological Societies. The meeting will bring together ecologists to discuss the latest advances in ecological research across the whole discipline and will focus on the major environmental challenges at the European level. The meeting will be held in association with the European Ecological Federation (EEF). For registration and detailed information please visit
