About the Network

Established in 2008, the Central European Network’s main purpose is the scientific exchange of information and the strengthening of biometry in Central Europe and around the Alps.  The initial members of the Network include the Austrian Swiss Region, The German Region and the Polish Region.   Joint conferences are held in turn in each region every 3 or 4 years.  The Network is open to including additional regions from Central Europe.
