ILTER has four regional networks which foster long term ecosystem research and thereby place specific emphasis on the particularities of their geographic region. The ILTER EAP regional network has now its own website as sub-site of the ILTER website.
Our Open Science Meetings are held every three years and offer a unique opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking. We expect more than 300 delegates from around the globe and up to 200 presentations related to different themes in the framework of Long Term Ecosystem Research and related fields. The programme also includes a scientific field trip open to all delegates. The 2019 OSM will kindly be hosted by UFZ (Umwelttforschungszentrum) Leipzig, Germany.
