 The Volunteers

The group of beekeepers in the program is growing quickly. There are currently more then 200 breeders participating in Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Switserland, Austria, Italy and the USA.


Students work in one of the cornerstone projects. These projects, with a mix of fundamental and applied research, will help us to better and more efficiently run our breeding and selection project.
