    University of Hohenheim, 16.-17. November 2023

    The topic's of this year's networking conference for staff members of the ELLS was "Communicating (about) Biodiversity". Different stakeholders used the panel discussion "Food production in times of mass extinction - starving for biodiversity" to discuss how the scientific knowledge about biodiversity loss can be transferred to society. In conlusion, the panel and the ELLS participants agreed that we need to re-think agriculture.

    ELSA the Euroleague Student Association, received the ELLS Award 2023 for special merits within ELLS. Our congratulations! ELSA is not only the voice of the students and an important decision maker within the network, but also organises the Scientific Student Conference.

    Under this year's topic "The Power of Science - Many Perspectives on our World" students of all ELLS universities presented their bachelor and master theses. As every year, the best poster and oral presentations were awarded.
