The XII European Congress of Entomology (ECE 2023) aimed to provide a unique platform for participants to exchange expertise, perspectives and research findings on pressing challenges in the field of entomology. These encompass a wide array of issues, from the increasing threat of climate change, damaging vector-borne diseases and biodiversity loss to the need to feed an expanding world population. The ECE 2023 audience comprised researchers and scholars from diverse entomology-related disciplines, alongside policy-makers, field agronomists, crop protection experts, medical practitioners, engineers, social scientists and artists.
The LIFE Programme was attending and gave a presentation at a plenary slot on Thursday, 19 October, in the afternoon.
The following LIFE projects were present at the event this year:
LIFE BEETLES - improving the population size, distribution area and conservation status of three endemic beetle species.
