We are running an annual programme of biweekly, short seminars that showcases global Ecology research in forums addressed to scientists, and as a means of enhancing the relationship between research centres. Seminars take place on Fridays at 12 pm for 45 minutes with plenty of time afterwards for questions and discussion.

Seminars will combine online and onsite (CREAF, Sala Graus II, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain) formats but in all cases, talks will be always streamed (not recorded), so they can be followed online.
