The journey continues

It is not the aim of this blog to congratulate everybody on their birthday, but Sjef, if any, does deserve it. Happy birthday  Sjef (23rd January). And remember 70 is just a number.  Life is about passion. And you could not resist to continue our last 3 years pilot study using honeybees as bioindicators in the new consortium called INSIGNIA-EU. INSIGNIA-EU will run for the next 2,5 years. It is a tender put up by the EU with the title: Preparatory action for monitoring of environmental pollution using honeybees. It will run in all 27 EU countries in 2023 with at pilot study in 2022. This is a huge challenge that we will manage, because we are a very skilled, involved, and passionate team.  We are simply like a family.

Sjef! The exciting journey does continue.

We all within the consortium wish you the very best. And, let us do it!
