The European Network of Palm Scientists (EUNOPS) is an informal association of biologists with a wide spectrum of research interests in palms (Arecaceae or Palmae). The network, established in 2001, exists to facilitate exchange of information on palm research taking place in Europe, and to promote integration and collaboration. EUNOPS meetings have been held annually since the network's inception providing a regular forum for face-to-face discussions and research presentations. The meetings have taken place at different European venues each year and have a strong emphasis on student/postdoctoral research and lively debate.
EUNOPS and its meetings are not exclusive to European researchers - researchers from any part of the globe are extremely welcome to participate. For more information, please explore this site or contact palms (at) kew.org.
The next EUNOPS will be held at the open-air museum in Aarhus called “Den Gamle By” (translation: “The Old Town”), with the meeting on the 11th-12th May 2013, and an excursion on the 13th.
The preliminary program consists of a tour in the Greenhouses, a tour in “Den Gamle By” and four sessions of talks/presentations.
