https://eeflisbon2019.org/ -------------------------------------------- Welcome to the "15th European Ecological Federation (EEF) Congress" that will take place at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Lisbon, Portugal), from the 29th of July to the 2nd of August 2019. The overarching theme of this conference, Embedding Ecology in Sustainable Development Goals, is intended to promote discussions and interactions on how to integrate basic and applied ecological research, and their trans-disciplinarily impacts, for the effective implementation of the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Researchers and various stakeholders will have the opportunity to share outputs and innovative solutions in debates, round-tables and symposia, among others. The meeting is open to all: students, researchers from the public and private sectors, and stakeholders involved in the fields of ecology and conservation, evolution, genetics, environmental sciences, climate change, agro-forestry, social-ecology, economy, managers, and related disciplines. We invite you to be part of this creative and exciting congress, by contributing with your recent results, expertise, and ecological research in all areas of ecology, and also in other scientific areas on the interface. The congress will prove to be an excellent opportunity for discussion, exchange and transfer of knowledge, as well as helpful in improving your collaborative network. For us it is a privilege to host this event in Lisbon, and we hope that the scientific program, as well as the history, culture, and natural beauty of the city and people will make this congress a fruitful, and memorable one.
