Welcome to EBRS2020

Welcome to the 15th European Bat Research Symposium, to be held at the University of Turku, August 3rd-7th 2020. On this site you will find all the necessary information about the coming conference, from abstract submission and the preliminary programme, to accommodation and traveling.

We are aiming for a lower carbon footprint for the meeting, and therefore the 15th European Bat Research Symposium offers everyone environmental friendly opportunities and choices.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Turku, Finland, in August 2020

Information regarding the COVID-19 virus and EBRS2020 

The EBRS organising committee is closely following the COVID-19 situation. Likely, the virus will no longer be virulent at the time of EBRS and for the time being we are continuing the conference arrangements as planned.

We have, however, adjusted the key dates to give everyone more time to submit an abstract and register for the conference.

If there are any developments in the next few months that would potentially affect EBRS2020, we will update information on this website immediately. (Text updated 31 March 2020)
