21. Treffen Österreichischer Botaniker*innen

21st Meeting of Austrian Botanists

26th to 29th September 2024, Innsbruck

The 21st meeting of Austrian botanists will take place in Innsbruck from Thursday, September 26 to Sunday, September 29, 2024.

It is the tradition of the Austrian botanical community to span a thematic arc from botanical research to applied botanical topics and findings in nature conservation research and also to invite the large citizen science community - i.e. all those who enjoy the plant diversity of Austria and Central Europe - to the meetings. The meeting takes place every two years.

Please register in advance for the "Newsletter of the Austrian Botanists' Meetings" so that you can receive all information, including for subsequent events, directly and stay up to date.

Conference venue: Institute of Botany, Sternwartestraße 15, 6020 Innsbruck

Organizing committee: Cäcilia Lechner Pagitz, Johannes Schneider, Konrad Pagitz, Marianne Magauer, Pau Carnicero, Peter Schönswetter, Božo Frajman

The event has been recognised as a GREEN EVENT TIROL basic.

We ask all participants to use resources responsibly.
