ZOOLOGY Congress

About the congress

    ZOOLOGY, formerly named the Benelux Congress of Zoology, is an annual zoological meeting, held alternatingly in The Netherlands and Belgium, and is organised by the KNDV or our Belgian sister organization, the Royal Belgian Zoological Society.

    The congress includes invited lectures and oral/poster presentations by participants. It is an excellent opportunity for zoology students and young scientists to meet colleagues and to present and discuss the results of their research.

    Moreover, the congress gives an overview of the current scientific work at most universities and zoological institutes in Belgium and The Netherlands, and thus provides ample opportunity for establishing contacts for collaboration. The approximately 200 participants range from newly graduated students to senior scientists.

    Since 2001 the Distinguished Zoologist Lecture is delivered during the meeting in The Netherlands.
