"Non-intrusive bee monitoring"


Artist, researcher and founder of the Brussels Urban Bee Laboratory (BUBL), she will speak about her experience convening artists, scientists and technologists to observe bee colonies in non-intrusive setups to better understand their roles as pollinators and caretakers of biodiversity, as well as to study their relation to the urban environment as an element for its resilience.
