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 meeting of EUNOPS will take place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, May 6-8 2016, more details will follow soon..
