Symposium Week 2017
Previous important and successful Symposia had a great impact on the mycological community. The Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute has now started planning the 2017 Symposium week, consisting of three symposia, which will take place from Monday 28 August to Friday 1 September 2017. The week will kick off with the “2nd Symposium on Plant Biomass Conversion by Fungi” (28-29 August), a public symposium, “Famous Fungi” (evening 28 August), followed by the “Leading Women in Fungal Biology” (30-31 August), and a final symposium “Cryptic Speciation in Classifications” (1 September). The week will close with the opening of the new Building of the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute in Utrecht, and a fungal barbeque.
In the symposium week, a number of events are dedicated to the Westerdijk year celebrations. Along with partners like the KNAW, Utrecht University and the LNVH, we organise events. Check for more events (in Dutch) in the Utrecht Region the site of Utrecht University.
