Join the conference

During the Belgian ICOS Science Conference 2023 we will discuss the advantages of a standardised European monitoring network, dig into the ICOS data, and explore possible implementation of the ICOS data or measuring facilities in different science and industry fields.

Does you research address greenhouse gases in an atmospheric, maritime or ecosystem (including tropical or temperate climate forests, grasslands or crop fields, or heathland) setting, can your expertise invigorate the research conducted at or by the ICOS-Belgium network, or does your company see uncharted opportunities for possible future collaborations?

We love to welcome your contribution!

Make sure to send us your abstract by 28 February 2023!
