Meetings Other Relevant Events
SCB’s joint International Congress for Conservation Biology and European Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB-ECCB) is a forum for add ressing conservation challenges and for presenting new research and developments in conservation science and practice. Most importantly, ICCBs and ECCBs connect our global community of conservation professionals and are the major networking outlet for anyone interested in conservation.
The meeting theme is ‘Mission biodiversity: choosing new paths for conservation‘, and as such we intend that ICCB-ECCB 2015 is a transdisciplinary meeting and delegates attend from a range of professions and sectors. Conservation biology has always had socioeconomic relevance but it is clear that biologists need to undertake interdisciplinary collaborations from the first inception of projects, through to implementation and dissemination of outputs. The programme will emphasise science-policy and science-society dialogues using interactive sessions and symposia.
